Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 5 best wide receivers of all time
By Rob Leeds
Taking it way back, while the receivers in the modern era have been dominant for the Buccaneers, Kevin House was able to leave his mark on Buccaneer history in the early years of the franchise.
Regardless of any modern measurements or players who come to the team, Kevin House played with more speed than any other Buccaneer receiver ever.
There is something about seeing Doug Williams throw a pass to House with no defender within five yards while wearing the creamsicle jerseys that just feels like Tampa Bay football. There was more than one defender that got close to that 89 jersey and then saw it blaze past towards an open endzone.
House had the speed to make this list, and his level of production is one of the most impressive in team history. In what is one of the best single seasons for a Buccaneer receiver in franchise history, Kevin House posted 1,176 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on only 56 receptions back in 1981.
House averaged 21 yards per reception during that year and his career average of 17.3 yards per reception is tied for second all-time for Buccaneer receivers with over 100 receptions.
Kevin House may have played in a completely different era, but he still sits at third in team history for career receiving yards and career receiving touchdowns.
