The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven't exactly been around for a long time, having been established in 1976. They've managed to have a pretty up-and-down history in the league since then, enjoying a Super Bowl win and enduring some really tough campaigns as well.

But they've always seemed to have some talented wideouts – especially recently. With that in mind, let's take a look at the three best wide receivers in Buccaneers' history.

3. Kevin House (1980-86)

Kevin House has the third-most receiving yards in Buccaneers' history (4,928). He's also third in touchdowns, with 31. You can make a pretty convincing case for someone like Joey Galloway, but House gets the nod here, as he edges out Galloway in pretty much every available statistic. House has a 1,000-yard advantage over Galloway and a 3-touchdown edge as well.

2. Mark Carrier (1987-92)

Before the next man on this list came along, Mark Carrier was the team's all-time leading receiver, with 5,018 yards. He's still second in that category. His 27 touchdowns are tied for the fifth-most in franchise history, and his 321 receptions are the second most among all Bucs' wideouts. Carrier made his lone career Pro Bowl in 1989, when he put together a 1,422-yard, 9-touchdown campaign.

1. Mike Evans (2014-Present)

Mike Evans hasn't needed much time to establish himself as the best wideout in Buccaneers' history. He's only played 90 games with the team, but he ranks first essentially across the board, with 7,260 receiving yards, 462 receptions and 48 touchdowns. Now that Tom Brady is in town, perhaps Evans will add to his already-impressive resume with some postseason success.
