The new updated murals on the corners at Raymond James Stadium are now up, with cannons firing around players and the "SIEGE THE DAY!" slogan as well.
DT Gerald McCoy and LB Lavonte David are back from last year's murals, but the rest are new, with QB Jameis Winston and RB Doug Martin replacing WRs Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.
Who they're wearing
It's not exactly scientific, of course, but it's annual rite of Bucs preseason practice: walking a lap through the crowd and jotting down all the jerseys worn by Bucs fans in the stands.
It probably isn't hard to guess which player has the most jerseys in the Bucs crowd. But pause before you read on, and guess how many Winstons there were in that 100, and which players you think were next on the list.
Winston had 45 of those jerseys, more than double his closest teammate, which reinforces the whole "face of the franchise" aspect of his rise to prominence after only one NFL season. Next most popular? There were 18 of Martin's No. 22, just ahead of 17 fans wearing Evans' No. 13. Then 10 Davids and seven Jacksons, with two fans wearing rookie Vernon Hargreaves and one fan wearing Gerald McCoy's No. 93.
Former Bucs jerseys represented? Nine Mike Alstotts, four John Lynches and an impressive spectrum of former Bucs with a single jersey: Warrick Dunn, Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, Keyshawn Johnson, Warren Sapp, Joe Jurevicius, LeGarrette Blount, Josh Freeman and Mike Williams.
After three days of easing into contact, the Bucs have their first day of full-pad, full-contact practice today. Of the team's 11 practices open to the public, five are in the next week, with more open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Admission and parking are free at One Buc Place.
