Profile
Spent 12 amazing seasons in Tampa Bay making numerous highlight film plays with his battering ram style of play. Was always a massive fan favourite and was awarded a special retirement ceremony at half-time of the 2008 Seattle game. Remains the leading touchdown scorer in Buc franchise history and the second leading rusher. Six-times a Pro Bowler, a record for a Buccaneer offensive player. Came to London in 2009 with the Buccaneers for their game against New England and played for the Bucs UK team in their touch football game against the UK Patriots. The signature commentary call of Gene Deckerhoff, "Alsott up the gut touchdown Tampa Bay" is legendary in franchise history.
