Buccaneers are struggling down the stretch of this 2017 season, and now get set to play the Falcons on Monday Night Football. At halftime, they will acknowledge Super Bowl winning coach, Jon Gruden, and put him in their “Ring of Honor” at half time.

Gruden will join the original architect of the Bucs in the 1970’s, coach John McKay, as the only two non-players to receive the honors since the franchise began recognizing key parts of it’s past in 2009.

The first ever inductee was the Bucs original draft pick from 1976, the late great Lee Roy Selmon, in 2009. From that Hall of Fame defensive tackle, to 2013 inductee and fellow Hall of Famer, Warren Sapp, the Buccaneers have bookends, now at the position who’s names are up forever.

On his weekly radio appearance Wednesday on Tampa Sportsradio, 620-am WDAE, our Roy Cummings was asked about several subjects, including current Bucs All-Pro defensive tackle, Gerald McCoy and whether he’s a future candidate for the “Ring of Honor.”

McCoy, who’s been to the Pro Bowl for the last five years, has once again been Tampa Bay’s top defensive lineman, and quite probably will be named to a sixth straight Pro Bowl, soon. However, he was injured Sunday in the loss to the Lions and the fear is that he has a torn biceps and will miss the remaining three games of the season.

McCoy’s status for the rest of the year, as well as the “Ring of Honor” many years down the line are covered in this extended conversation:
