Buccaneers sign LB Lavonte David to five-year extension
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers have confirmed that they have signed linebacker Lavonte David to an extension that is reportedly for five years and $50.25 million, per NFL Media, which adds that a bit more than half of that is guaranteed.

David has been consistent and productive over his first three seasons with the team. He contributed to a career-high 146 tackles last year, though his sack total shrunk from seven in 2014 to one and he intercepted no passes after picking off five a season earlier.

Lovie Smith doesn't get Lavonte David's omission from Pro Bowl
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David was the only NFL linebacker to average double-digit tackles per game -- he had 146 stops in 14 games -- but he was not selected to the Pro Bowl.

“He can do it all,” coach Lovie Smith said of David. “I get a chance to see him up close and personal. I’ve seen the linebackers that go to the Pro Bowl, I’ve had a chance to coach them, I know what they look like and that is definitely the case with him.”

David, who also had four forced fumbles and a sack, missed two games with a concussion. If he plays a full season in 2015, David should make next year's Pro Bowl.
