Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay picked its nickname from a "name-the-team" contest held in 1975. Team owner Hugh F. Culverhouse along with local sportswriters selected Buccaneers from a list of over 400 original submissions.

Florida's western coast was commonly raided during the 18th and 19th centuries which inspired the Buccaneer moniker.
