4. Doug Martin

Here is another name that seems a little funny to see on the Bucs' all-time list, but Doug Martin does, indeed, own a top-five rushing total in team history coming in at no. 4 with 4,633 yards and 26 touchdowns over his six seasons with the team.

It wasn't that long ago that Martin rushed for a career-high 1,454 yards in his rookie season back in 2012. That's yet another Bucs running back to have his best season as a rookie, where Martin also ended up with 49 receptions for 472 yards and a score.

Martin also owns one of the best nicknames in Bucs history, too, being crowned the "Muscle Hamster."

He had a couple of subpar years after that rookie campaign and also dealt with some injury issues, but in Year 4, Martin bounced back with another great season, rushing for 1,402 yards and six scores. He not only earned his second Pro Bowl that year, but also an All Pro honor.

Other than those two outstanding seasons, Martin would see his rushing total hover between 400-500 yards in each of his other four seasons with the Bucs. He spent the final year of his career with the Raiders in 2018, going for 723 yards and four touchdowns.
