Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Racks up eight tackles in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Conte totaled eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams. He also recovered a fumble.

The veteran safety tied Lavonte David for the team lead in stops and has already racked up 26 tackles through three games. He also alertly picked up a fumble by the Rams' Kenny Britt early in the second quarter and provided a nifty 10-yard return. Conte is providing above-average tackle numbers out of the free safey so far this season, a trend he'll look to continue in the Week 4 matchup versus the Broncos.

Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Tallies seven stops in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Conte totaled seven tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cardinals.

The veteran safety's final stat line was solid enough, but he appeared to be at least partially responsible for two of the Cardinals' scores. Conte was late coming over to help Brent Grimes on a first-quarter touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald and then let Michael Floyd get behind him on a late second-quarter strike, a reception that turned out to be the receiver's only catch on the day. Conte does have 18 tackles through the first two games, but his performance and that of his secondary mates left much to be desired in Week 2.

Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Second on team with 11 tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conte totaled 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 31-24 victory over the Falcons.

The veteran safety was second only to Kwon Alexander in stops on the afternoon, an extension of the impressive training camp and preseason that he put together. Conte was busy throughout the contest, with Matt Ryan attempting 39 passes and Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman combining for 19 totes. Although it appeared that the surprise January firing of head coach Lovie Smith, who was instrumental in bringing Conte onboard last season after their joint tenure in Chicago, could have easily led to the Bucs opting not to re-sign him, he increasingly looks like he could be one of the bargains of the offseason after re-upping on a one-year deal.

Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Nearly turns in three-interception practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Conte stood out in Saturday's practice, picking off two passes and nearly coming away with a third while covering Cameron Brate, the team's official site reports.

The veteran safety, who was re-signed to a one-year deal in March, was a thorn in the side of Bucs quarterbacks Saturday. Conte impressively hauled in Jameis Winston's attempted post to Mike Evans and then came down with a deflected pass in the end zone. He was a whisper away from a third pick, cutting in front of Brate on the left sideline and getting his hands on the ball before having it squirt to the ground. Conte was singled out by head coach Dirk Koetter after practice and could have plenty of opportunties for plays on the ball this season, considering that new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme will reportedly ask the safeties to line up in "five or six" different looks.

Buccaneers' Chris Conte: Re-signs with Bucs on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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 secondary coach Jon Hoke while both were with the Bears.
