Of the 13 players to have worn this number for the Bucs, four have been quarterbacks but probably only one is someone Buc fans have ever heard of. Mike Boryla was actually once a Pro Bowler elsewhere in the NFL who missed the entire 1977 season through injury after signing as a free agent and then didn't do a lot once he did get a chance to play. Mike Ford was the No.3 QB behind Doug Williams and firstly Chuck Fusina and then Jerry Golsteyn in the early 1980s, whilst former Seahawk Jim Zorn started the third and final replacement game in 1987 replacing John Reaves. So aside from Martin Gramatica who took over the No.10 jersey in honour of his countryman and soccer hero Diego Maradona, we are left with Shaun King as being the best QB to wear the number for the Bucs. Five years in Tampa with some 20-odd starts although he never lived up to his early rookie promise as defenses realised he did not have an NFL-calibre arm. An offensive player to wear the number was 2008 rookie flop Dexter Jackson who showed amazing speed in pre-season and then an amazing lack of ability in the regular season. Connor Barth took over the kicking duties midway through the 2009 season and merely became the then-most accurate kicker in franchise history before injuring his ACL in the summer of 2013 that ultimately led to his release although he did come back for an encore during 2015. Adam Humphries took over the No.10 jersey in 2017 when he switched from his original No.11 to alow free agent signing DeSean Jackson to wear it. Humphries proceeded to have two great statistical seasons as the No.3 receiver wearing it with Scotty Miller taking over from him in 2019. 6th round pick Trey Palmer is the current owner of the 10 jersey and had a very successful rookie season in 2023.
