Former Buc tight end Anthony Becht joined WDAE's the Sports Page Thursday morning to reflect on Buc owner Malcolm Glazer.

Becht recalled how people were quite skeptical when Glazer bought the team.

"People were shaking their heads 'Why would you take that chance at that price?' But it's all about vision. The great ones that have great vision become great leaders," said Becht.

He referenced how Glazer built the team up from "Day One" into the construction of Raymond James Stadium.

"He put Tampa Bay back on the map," said Becht, who added that his reflections on Glazer also go towards the charitable work he's done.

Becht played for the Bucs from 2005-07.

"Those three seasons were outstanding. The stadium was full every game," Becht said.
