10 former Bucs players that never played in a Super Bowl
By Adam Patrick
Doug Martin – RB
- Playoff Games: 0
Like Gerald McCoy, Doug Martin was a part of the 2010s Bucs teams that never earned a single spot in the playoffs. It wasn’t like Martin wasn’t trying though.
In two of his first four years with Tampa, Martin rushed for over 1,400 yards and six touchdowns. But it still wasn’t enough to get the Bucs into the postseason.
It’s a shame since Martin was one of the most enjoyable former Tampa players to watch out on the field. For as much production that he had during the regular season in some of his years with the Bucs, it would have been nice to see him showcase his skills in the playoffs at least once.
Vincent Jackson – WR
- Playoff Games: 7
- Conference Championship Appearances: 1
After spending his first seven seasons in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers, Vincent Jackson decided to move to the other side of the country and sign with Tampa.
Jackson quickly proved his worth during his first and second years with the Bucs in which he averaged 75 catches, 1,304 yards, and eight touchdowns. Despite his impressive production, Tampa was unable to make the playoffs in either of these seasons.
