No. 5: Joey Galloway
Coming in at No. 5 on the list is a 16-year NFL veteran that made a stop in Tampa from 2004 to 2008: Joey Galloway. He was a part of two playoff runs in those five seasons, including the team’s most recent postseason appearance in the 2007-2008 season. Over the course of his Buccaneer career, No. 84 piled up numbers that have him among the best in franchise history. He is 10th in catches (248), fifth in receiving yards (3,912) and third in receiving touchdowns (28).

Galloway had three 1,000-yard seasons in five years with the team and put up double-digit touchdowns (10) in 2005. He had a good connection with Jeff Garcia in Tampa Bay’s 2007 playoff season and always kept things interesting with his touchdown celebrations, flexing his massive bicep every time he crossed the goal line.
In his time with the Bucs, the former Ohio State Buckeye caught passes from Brian Griese, Brad Johnson, Chris Simms, Bruce Gradkowski, Luke McCown and Garcia. He was a big-game kind of player, as he posted 11 100-yard games in his Tampa Bay career and averaged 80.4 yards per game, which is good for fifth in team history. His final season wasn’t a great one, but what he was able to do in his first four years with the team certainly gives him a good place in franchise history.
