Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Career-high 91 tackles in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDougald finished the 2016 season with 91 tackles (79 solo), including three for loss, two interceptions, 10 passes defensed overall, and one fumble recovery.

The soon-to-be four-year veteran set career highs in tackles, fumble recoveries, and passes defensed, while equaling a high-water mark in interceptions. The University of Kansas product has now upped his tackle numbers in each of his three seasons and also proven highly durable, missing only one out of a possible 48 games to date in his career. McDougald is now an unrestricted free agent after playing the 2016 campaign on a one-year, $2.55 million contract, and it remains to be seen if the secondary-needy Bucs will opt to bring him back into the fold. Rookie Ryan Smith, who logged just one tackle over 14 games while playing mostly on special teams, would presumably get first crack at McDougald's strong safety job if the latter is allowed to go elsewhere.

Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Records second interception of season in Week 12 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDougald was credited with five tackles (all solo), including one for loss, and an interception in Sunday's 14-5 win over the Seahawks.

The strong safety secured the game-sealing pick of Russell Wilson on a pass intended for Tyler Lockett, snaring the throw at the Bucs' two-yard line with 1:36 remaining in the contest. It was McDougald's second interception of the season, equaling his career-high total from 2015. With 62 tackles on the campaign, the fourth-year pro is on pace to surpass the 87 stops he compiled last season.

Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Leads Bucs in tackles in Week 9 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDougald was credited with seven tackles (five solo) and two passes defensed in Thursday's 43-28 loss to the Falcons.

McDougald continues to rack up tackles, but the Bucs' secondary also continues to bleed yards to opposing air attacks, so the luster of those numbers is somewhat dulled. The fourth-year safety's 48 stops put him on pace for a career-high 96 by season's end.

Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Eight tackles in Week 8 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDougald was credited with eight tackles (all solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss to the Raiders.

The strong safety continues to pile up the tackle numbers, as he's now tallied eight stops in three of the past four weeks. The 25-year-old is on pace to surpass last season's career-high 87 tackles, but given his pivotal role in a Bucs secondary that was scorched for 513 yards Sunday, he could certainly stand to see an improvement in his pass coverage. McDougald and the rest of the Tampa defensive backfield will be put to the test again in just three days when the high-powered Falcons offense comes to town.

Buccaneers' Bradley McDougald: Paces Bucs in tackles in Week 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDougald totaled eight tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed in Monday night's 17-14 win over the Panthers.

The starting strong safety has racked up the stops the last two weeks, logging eight tackles apiece against the Broncos and Panthers. McDougald has taken to run-stopping responsibilities well in new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme, as his 26 overall stops on the season through five weeks essentially have him on pace to match or potentially exceed the career-high 87 he was credited with last season. While he's yet to grab an interception and can be up-and-down in pass coverage, the 25-year-old has certainly raised his profile as an IDP option the last two games in particular.
