Until November 22, 2021, when wide receiver Mike Evans scored his 72nd touchdown as a Buccaneer, Alstott was the Buccaneers’ all-time top scorer.
Michael Joseph Alstott is a retired American fullback who spent 12 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the National Football League. He was dubbed “A-Train” during his college football career at Purdue and was drafted in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft by the Buccaneers.
