Brad Johnson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Super Bowl XXXVII

After nine years of battling injuries and fighting for playing time, Brad Johnson went from riding pine to starring in National Football League games. In 2002, he set a team record for touchdowns (22) and became the first Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback to lead the NFC in passer rating (92.9). That same season, he carried the Buccaneers to Super Bowl XXXVII. He threw for 215 yards and two TDs as the Bucs dominated the Raiders for their first championship in franchise history. His determination not only led to an NFL championship but also a couple of Pro Bowl appearances.
