johnson-story.jpg has been polling the fans to figure out which players are among their favorites in team history. So far, three players have been listed. And coming in at No. 17 is Super Bowl champion, Brad Johnson.

Johnson played quarterback for the Bucs from 2001 to 2004 and helped lead the team to a world championship in 2002. He threw for 215 yards and two touchdowns during the Bucs' 48-21 victory over the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, capping off a second consecutive season with 3,000 or more passing yards. Johnson was also named to the Pro Bowl following that championship season. 

His 10,940 passing yards in a Buccaneer uniform are the fifth-most in team history, as are his 64 touchdown passes. He is one of only four Buccaneer quarterbacks to complete more than 1,000 passes, along with Trent Dilfer, Vinny Testaverde and Josh Freeman.

Johnson was originally selected by the Vikings in the ninth round of the 1992 NFL Draft out of Florida State. He played for four teams during his 17-year NFL career and retired having thrown for 29,054 yards, enough for 45th on the NFL's all-time list.
