The No.33 shirt Not a difficult selection for the best-ever to wear No.33. Mark Cotney played the first nine seasons in the Buccaneer secondary and started nearly 100 games for John McKay, being named an All-Pro in 1983. It took the Bucs a long time to replace his leadership in the defensive backfield.But since then, a collection of 19 different players from different positions with limited success. Reggie Cobb switched numbers after his rookie season and both Mazio Royster and Anthony McDowell wore other numbers during their times in the Buccaneer backfield.Jeff George was a replacement team special teamer and not the former first overall pick of the Colts, whilst Earnest Graham wore the number in his first season before switching to his more recognisable 34 jersey.FB Jerald Sowell who saw only limited action during 2006 and was then followed by another non-descript back in Kenneth Darby who had as much playing time the following year. Jameel Cook originally wore 43 but took this number on his re-signing midway through the 2008 season.The number has been worn by several nondescripts in recent years although 2018 2nd round pick Carlton Davis will attempt to bring prestige back to the number in the future.
