Number Juggling: Is Myron Lewis Endangered?

May 2nd, 2013

Now this isn’t official but it’s damn close.

Since the Bucs acquired cornerback Darrelle Revis, it seems Bucs fans wanted to know what number he would wear more than Joe wanted a spare key to Rachel Watson‘s back door.

It appears that Revis may have been able to purchase jersey No. 24 from safety Mark Barron.

No, the rosters have not changed (as of 1:30 a.m. Thursday) on But on the same site, the Bucs are taking orders forĀ Revis No. 24 jerseys.

At the same time, if you click on “Mark Barron” to purchase his jersey, it is adorned with No. 23.

Who was No. 23? That would be feared Bucs cornerback and fan favorite Myron Lewis.

Now whoever built this page is covering themselves. There is a disclaimer next to the Revis jersey, “NOTICE: Player number has yet to be determined. Jersey will ship once player number is officially assigned.” This same disclaimer is not found on the same page as the No. 23 Barron jersey.

Interestingly, in NFL protocol, whoever has seniority with a numberĀ decides if he wants to keep a number or sell it. Lewis has seniority over Barron, who has seniority over Revis, which is why Revis would have had to buy his No. 24 from Barron.

There are no Lewis jerseys for sale; they must be customized jerseys.

Now did Lewis sell his jersey number to Barron, or is there a transaction about to be announced? If Revis does have No. 24 and Barron No. 23, it does seem strange neither one of them (nor Lewis) has written anything about this on Twitter.

Joe will be at One Buc Palace later today to get to the bottom of this riddle.

    That is the most hilarious thing I’ve ever read on this site!

  2. Architek Says:

    Hahahaha Myron Lewis should just have player on his jersey with 00 as the number.

  3. 4everBucsFan Says:

    This maybe the year Lewis gets waived, especially if Ronde signs on.

  4. Youpeoplearesodumb Says:

    No need to cut him now unless you need a roster spot. Let him go to camp and compete and let the natural selection process run its’ course.

    Myron lewis is gone…. that simple!!! he was atrocious all the time he was on the field, he had so many chances and all were dismissed…. good luck myron but football might not be your career after all, time to move on….

  8. Biff Barker Says:

    While we are all laughing at Myron, Biggars, etc., lets also remember our entire defensive effort last year.
    The scheme and coordinator should be included in the fun.

  9. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Biff, the scheme was fine. The execution is where it faltered.

    I would be happy
    with the key to the front door. With all due respect.

  11. BuccFanInHawkeyeCountry Says:

    Could it be they just assume Revis is getting 24 and they don’t know what number Barron is taking so they just went with the next number down? (U know they’re not goin up to 25, aqib tainted that number haha)

  12. Jacko101 Says:

    I talked to M Barron and suggested he take 42 if he was planning on switching. I said 42 was Ronnie Lott’s number one of the best to play safety.

  13. walkergodeep Says:

    I never liked 24 on Barron in the first place

  14. dylan Says:

    I CRACKED THE CODE!!! jonathan banks wore 13 in college. can not wear that at corner in the NFL, so 23 will be banks. revis will buy 24 so there is 24.. barron will wear 25!! thats a solid number and talib is now gone.

  15. walkergodeep Says:

    Banks should get 25

  16. st. louis Bucs fan Says:

    “Is Myron Lewis Endangered?”

    Yes, always yes.

  18. @MikeInTampa2 Says:

    Banks is wearing #27 he said on twitter a few days ago

  19. bucsfan4ever123 Says:

    Banks will be wearing number 27 this season

  20. John Says:

    For those who didn’t know #42 was Ricky Bell’s number and hasn’t been worn by another player since.

  21. dp4life22 Says:

    #44 for barron, think he wore #4 in college, double his nuber like he doubled his pay.. them big hitters always were numbers in 40’s (lott, browner. lynch. check atwater)

    finally the Myron lewis saga is about to come to an end.
