The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not have a player selected for the AP All-Pro team for the fourth consecutive season. The last time a Buccaneer made an All-Pro team was 2008, when Clfiton Smith was selected as a second-team kick returner. The last Buccaneers to be selected to the All-Pro first team were Ronde Barber and Derrick Brooks in 2005.
Just two players received All-Pro votes this season: both Gerald McCoy and Ronde Barber both received two votes. Neither player would have been out of place on the All-Pro team. McCoy's snubbing was especially egregious, with Haloti Ngata and Ndamukong Suh both being named All-Pros ahead of McCoy, despite worse seasons.
But a few other Buccaneers were snubbed, too. Doug Martin was third in the NFL in yards from scrimmage, yet did not receive a single All-Pro vote. Marshawn Lynch, Alfred Morris, Jamaal Charles and Arian Foster all received votes despite trailing Morris in yards from scrimmage. Similarly, Vincent Jackson's 1,434 receiving yards and his first rank in yards per catch weren't enough to receive a single vote. Andre Johnson, Wes Welker and Julio Jones received votes despite trailing Jackson in both those categories.
