A list of the best Tampa Bay Buccaneers of all time. Formed in 1976, the Buccaneers had some really, really bad teams for the first part of its history. Despite a few playoff trips in the late '70s and early '80s, the Bucs were tough to watch. They did have one of the best defensive ends in NFL history in Lee Roy Selmon. The same goes for legendary quarterback Doug Williams. Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, Williams left the team for the USFL in a contract dispute. It took them years to recover. In the mid-'90s, the Buccaneers finally started to turn things around when they started to acquire the players that would make up the foundation of contending teams to come. Many of these players are considered the best in team history. Some, like lineman Warren Sapp, are some of top at their respective position. Sapp in particular is one of the best defensive tackles of all time.

Derrick Brooks, Ronde Barber and John Lynch were all parts of strong defensive teams that were perennial playoff contenders. On offense, fullback Mike Alstott was one of the team's most popular players because of his hard-nosed running. Finally after the 2003 season, the Bucs captured their first Super Bowl title behind the efforts of some of the best players in team history one of the best defenses of all time.
