Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Fans' Favorite All-Time Bucs, No. 19 polled fans on their favorite all-time player. Here's who finished No. 19.

No. 19 - TE Jimmie Giles

  • Buccaneer Career (1978-86)
  • 4-Time Pro Bowl Selection
  • 2011 Ring of Honor Inductee
  • Bucs' Record for TD Catches
  • 34 Receiving Touchdowns
  • 4,300 Receiving Yards
  • 279 Receptions

Buccaneer fans were polled on who their favorite players of all-time were, and coming in at No. 19 is one of the greatest pass-catchers in team history - tight end Jimmie Giles. He follows running back Cadillac Williams, who was named to the No. 20 spot by the fans.

Giles played in Tampa Bay from 1978 to 1986 and owns almost every tight end record the team has to offer. He's the Bucs' all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards for tight ends and has more receiving touchdowns (34) than any other player in team history.

Giles was a four-time Pro Bowl selection, earning three-straight nominations in 1980, 1981 and 1982. He was selected to the Pro Bowl again in 1985, the same season he set the Bucs' record for touchdowns in a single game with four. In 2011, Giles became the third member of the Buccaneers' Ring of Honor. Hall-of-Famer Lee Roy Selmon was the first player selected and John McKay, the Bucs' first head coach, was the second.
