Bucs to Honor the Late Malcolm Glazer

Today the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled plans to honor late honor Malcolm Glazer by wearing a memorial patch with the initials “MG” for the entire 2014 season.

The team will begin wearing the patches this Friday at the preseason opener in Jacksonville. Glazer passed away May 28 at the age of 85.

“Our father was very proud of his ownership of the Buccaneers and we know how special each football season was to him and our entire family,” said Buccaneers co-chairman Bryan Glazer in a statement issued by the team.

“The support we have received since his passing has been overwhelming and we look forward to honoring him this season.”

The team will also broadcast a tribute on the video boards at the Sept. 7 regular season home opener against the Carolina Panthers.
