Kicker: Martin Gramatica (1999 – 2004)

Martin Gramatica was a Pro Bowler in 2000, and is the only kicker to be bestowed the honor. He was also the kicker on arguably the golden era of Buccaneers football, and his personality has endeared him to the hearts of Bucs fans.

Punter: Josh Bidwell (2004 – 2008)

Similar to Gramatica, Josh Bidwell is the only punter that can call himself a Pro Bowler thanks to his 2005 selection. It was slim pickings for the punter, but Bidwell stood alone regardless.

Returner: Karl Williams (1996 – 2003)

The Buccaneers may not have the most storied history for returners, considering Michael Spurlock returned the first kick for a touchdown ever for the Bucs in 2007. Still, Karl “The Truth” Williams was a solid return man for a long time, and is the team’s al-time leader in punt return yardage.

So there you have it, the Pewter Plank’s all-time Buccaneers team. Surely there will be talking points and/or disagreements, but that’s all in the fun. With Tom Brady and Lavonte David possibly out the outs, an era of Tampa Bay Buccaneers football will come to a close should this happen. Similarly, this era of Pewter Plank coverage comes to an end for this writer and site expert/editor, so with that, comes a bid of adieu for you all. It has been a pleasure.
