Glazer, 86, purchased the Bucs in January of 1996. Under his ownership, the Buccaneers won Super Bowl XXXVII and made the playoffs seven times, compared to just three appearances in 19 seasons under the previous ownership. Glazer, born in Rochester, NY, amassed a fortune of over $4.5 billion through a variety of business enterprises. Between 2003 and 2005, Glazer gained controlling ownership of English soccer team Manchester United, one of the most valuable sports properties in the world.
*While the tweet lists Glazer's age at 85, he was born May 25, 1926, making him 86 as of this past Sunday.
