 Ronnell "Ron" Lee was a former NFL running back who was to be drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was shipped off to the Indianapolis Colts, then known as the Baltimore Colts, so the Bucs could get Mike Washington, one of the best cornerbacks in team history, who retired as the all-time franchise leader in interceptions with 28 and started 96 out of 100 games he suited up for.


Ron Lee was traded to the Indianapolis Colts right before the 1976 NFL Draft, so the Buccaneers could get Mike Washington (as mentioned above), who was one of the most successful cornerbacks to ever play for the Buccaneers. Lee was always a massive threat out of the Colts' backfield whenever Lydell Mitchell wasn't productive enough, and sometimes they would both combined for 200 rushing yards in a single game. Ron Lee finished his three-year career with 986 rushing yards, 182 receiving, 7 rushing TDs, 1 receiving TD, and combined all of that for 1,168 scrimmage yards/8 scrimmage TDs.
