In addition to all of the above, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, team where he won the Super Bowl XXXVII, in 2003, and where he directed for six seasons, has removed him from Ring of Honor, in tribute to those who made history in the team, warning that “your actions go against our core values ​​as an organization”.
