One of the most under-used shirt numbers in Buccaneer history. I wonder how Parnell Dickinson felt when Derrick Lewis made it on to the inactive roster briefly in 2004 and became the second Buc ever to sport No.18? Parnell, or "Paydirt" as he was known, made one start during the expansion season and saw playing time in seven other games. He was fast, had a big arm and often couldn't hit a cow's backside with a banjo. But he was also a great quote after the game and went on to work at Raymind James Stadium for the NFL enforcing the league's uniform code during home games. The next wearer of the jersey obviously also felt the Parnell influence as Brian Clark switched to the No.87 jersey almost as quickly as Lewis had and lost it. Sammie Stroughter was the rookie receiving sensation of 2009 and even returned a kickoff for a touchdown during his first NFL season and although his following seasons were not been so spectacular, he still winds up surpassing Paydirt for the best No.18. A series of back-up receivers have worn the jersey in recent seasons none of which challenged Stroughter's hold on the best-ever No.18 title. Tyler Johnson had it for two seasons, left and then came back on to the practice squad in 2022. BEST EVER TO WEAR No.18 FOR THE BUCS - SAMMIE STROUGHTER
