Profile
Probably one of the best receivers the Bucs have ever had. Set the single game receiving record for the Bucs with a 212-yard performance in New Orleans in 1987 and was also the first Tampa Bay receiver ever to go to the Pro Bowl. His 1989 season set team records for receptions and yards and he remains the team leader in yardage gained. Never a big talker off the field, Carrier spent six seasons in Tampa as a starting wide receiver before moving on to lesser seasons with New Orleans and Carolina before dropping out of the NFL. Originally wore the 89 shirt as a rookie and then switched to 88 in 1988.
