They had never reached the playoffs before. In 1979, they made it all the way to the NFC Championships. When Doug Williams signed with the team, he was the only African-American NFL starting quarterback. The Buccaneers paid him only $120,000 per year, the lowest salary of any quarterback in the league.

In 1986, he returned to the NFL, signing with the Washington Redskins. He led the Redskins to Super Bowl XXII, and was named Super Bowl MVP.
