  • Conte has re-signed with the Bucs on a one-year deal, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 27-year-old returns to Tampa despite the departure of head coach Lovie Smith, who was instrumental in bringing his former Bears protege to the Bucs in 2015. Conte totaled 79 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles last season, while playing 66.5 percent of the defensive snaps (731). A knee injury originally suffered in Week 15 versus the Rams led to Conte being placed on injured reserve prior to the season finale. The six-year veteran does have history with one of the coaches on new Bucs defensive coordinator Mike Smith's staff, having worked with new secondary coach Jon Hoke while both were with the Bears.

  • Conte has expressed a desire to return to the Bucs next season, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The five-year veteran had a solid first season in Tampa, tallying 79 tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions over 14 games. Conte had the benefit of having played in Lovie Smith's defensive system in Chicago, and the experience seemed to help him get his feet under him quickly with the Bucs. "These are the coaches I've always wanted to play for, and hopefully they still believe in me and want me to be back, Conte remarked. "Definitely, this is the place I want to be and start something here." The 26-year-old may figures to receive some interest from secondary-needy teams, given his age and experience playing both safety positions.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Doesn't practice Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Conte (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Conte initially suffered a knee injury in Week 15's Thursday night tilt at St. Louis, but despite turning in limited practices last week, he was deemed inactive this past Sunday against the Bears. After another capped showing Wednesday, he was held out entirely Thursday, which could portend his fate for the season finale. Nevertheless, his listing on Friday's injury report could change the tone of his upcoming availability.
