NFL Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon dies at 56
« on: September 05, 2011, 10:25:59 AM »
Lee Roy Selmon, former defensive end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and member of the NFL Hall of Fame, passed away Sunday after having had a stroke two days earlier. He was 56.

From the article:
Selmon, a two-time national champion and three-time All-American at Oklahoma University, played nine seasons after the expansion Buccaneers made him the first overall pick in the 1976 draft. He was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1979, when the Bucs made it to the NFC championship game.

He still is the team’s all-time leader in sacks (78.5) and forced fumbles (28.5) and is the only Hall of Fame member to have played all of his seasons with Tampa Bay.
