THE TOP 30 RUNNING BACKS IN BUCCANEER HISTORY The next in our countdowns will look at the guys who carry the ball and we will do it on performance as we look daily at the top 30 rushers in franchise history. Excluding QBs who have gained a lot of rushing yardage, these are the backs who have taken all the bruising hits in the proverbial three yards and a pile of dust. It may remind fans of players they have forgotten or introduce them to those that they did not know and that is what all of these features are about.
6 REGGIE COBB (1990-1993) 3,061 yards on 878 carries 3.5 avg Best game - Week 10, 1992 v Chicago 114 yardsPlayed four years with the Bucs and was the mainstay of the running game during those seasons. Posted a 1,000-yard season in 1992 and scored nine touchdowns, but could never really be described as a feature back. Was also not that great a receiver out of the backfield. But he did a good enough job for a second round pick, had some nice games, and played two further seasons in Green Bay after leaving the Bucs as a free agent after the 1993 season. Played briefly with the Jets and Jaguars before ending his playing career but returned to Tampa Bay in 2003 as a member of their scouting organisation.
