The 1991 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season began with the team trying to improve on an 6–10 season. Vinny Testaverde was replaced by Chris Chandler at quarterback early in the season. Reggie Cobb had a three touchdown game late in the season. Testaverde threw almost twice as many interceptions as touchdowns. Williamson was released after a season ending win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Tax records would later show that the Buccaneers were one of the most profitable teams during this time, even though owner Hugh Culverhouse announced the Bucs were losing money and needed to play games in Orlando, Florida to get income. Such records revealed Culverhouse ran the Bucs as a profit first business, often releasing better players who would deserve big contracts.
