Bucs reunion kicks off at Raymond James Stadium



They’re all here. Jon Gruden. Warren Sapp. Keyshawn Johnson. Mike Alstott. Brad Johnson. Monte Kiffin.

The heroes of the Bucs’ 2002 Super Bowl season are at Raymond James Stadium today to commemorate the 10-year anniversary, and it should be a day to remember.

Already today, we’ve witnessed Gruden and Johnson standing …. next to each other and chatting it up. Obviously, some fences have been mended.

It should be a great day here at Raymond James Stadium, and there’s even a game to play.

The Bucs, in their matchup against the Eagles today, will be without nose tackle Roy Miller (concussion). He’ll be replaced by Gary Gibson in the starting lineup.

The Bucs’ inactives are cornerback LeQuan Lewis, running back Michael Smith, linebacker Najee Goode, receiver David Gilreath, receiver David Douglas, defensive Matthew Masifilo and Miller.

With Lewis (knee) injured, it’s unclear who will return kickoffs. It obviously, however, won’t be Smith.

Kickoff is coming up at the top of the hour. The Bucs say the game is now officially a sellout, so the atmosphere should be electric. Stay tuned.
