That sucks. 56 years old.

Lee Roy was one of the first guys to be labeled "my favorite football player". He had that cool face mask with all the bars and he kicked ass.

He was the first ever pick by the Bucs and was a consistent face in the Tampa area for four decades.

He was the AD at USF for four years and the team wore his number on their helmets yesterday at ND.

Love this quote by him.

Selmon was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. Presented by brother Dewey, Lee Roy said it was his family background that was noteworthy and not his accomplishments on the field.
“People have said, ‘Your parents must be proud of you,’ but I’m more proud of them,” he said

Can't figure out how to change the error in the title of the thread. I click on edit and it doesn't allow me to edit the title, only the body.

Longtime Bucs fan here. Very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great player in his day. 56 is way too young to go.
