Number 2: Mike Alstott
What can you say about Mike Alstott other than the fact that he was basically the Hulk dressed as Mike Alstott? The Buccaneers selected A-Train in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft, and he is the only name on this list that remained with the Buccaneers for the entirety of his career.
Before Mike Evans got to Tampa, the most popular Mike in Tampa was Alstott, and to some, he still may be the most popular Mike.
Alstott was an integral part of the team during their Super Bowl run in the ’02-’03 season. He played big, he played strong, and well, he played like a bowling ball.
The opposing defenses were scared to go up against Alstott. One would be hard-pressed to find an instance where one defender was able to bring down Alstott.
While his official position was fullback, the Buccaneers used him more as a big running back, oftentimes subbing Alstott in to give the other backs some rest. It was fitting to put A-Train on this list because, in two of his seasons, he actually led the team in rushing yards.
Alstott played his entire eleven-year career with the Buccaneers, where he became a three-time All-Pro, a six-time Pro Bowler, and a Super Bowl champion.
Mike Alstott rushed for 5,088 yards during his career and had a total of 58 rushing touchdowns. He also had over 2,200 receiving yards and 13 receiving touchdowns. Mike Alstott was the perfect representation of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
