George Ragsdale is a former NFL running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was drafted No. 321 overall in the 1976 expansion season, but missed the entire 1976 season through injury. He eventually came back the following season 5 games into the  1977 season, to play three seasons (1977-79) as a backup running back and starting kick returner. He was cut from training camp in 1980 after the Buccaneers tried to convert him to a cornerback. Although we once thought, he only wore the No. 23 jersey, he (presumably) wore the No. (66 or 65) in a few games of 1977.
