It feels like just yesterday that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl 55. While a lot has happened in the subsequent four months since that victory, one thing remains: the champions still don't have their Super Bowl ring.
While a lot of accolades come with winning a Super Bowl, few feelings for a player compare to how they feel when they don that piece of jewelry. Fortunately for the Buccaneers, they don't have to way too much longer for their rings. It was announced on Friday that each player will receive their respective ring on July 22.
The rings will be given out in a private ceremony on July 22, just two days before Tampa's training camp is slated to begin. It'll be interesting to see what they'll look like. After all, the ring design varies on which team won the Super Bowl that year and any other significance behind the victory.
Once he receives his ring, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will only have three bare fingers left. His seven Super Bowl victories are also the most out of any player in NFL history. Considering how he managed to throw for 4,633 passing yards and 40 touchdowns in 2020, the 43-year-old signal-caller clearly has a lot left in the tank. Don't be surprised if he takes Tampa on another Super Bowl run next season.
The Buccaneers currently have the 2nd-best odds to win Super Bowl 56 at +650, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. While only the Chiefs have a better chance at winning (+500), the defending champions will be looking to prove any disrespectful oddsmakers wrong in 2021.
