Buccaneers' defense could spark turnaround
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New general manager Jason Licht thinks the Buccaneers' defense could jumpstart a quick turnaround in Tampa Bay.

“We have a lot of core players on this team that I am very excited about — (defensive tackle) Gerald McCoy, (linebacker) Lavonte David, (cornerback) Darrelle Revis and (safety) Dashon Goldson, just to name a few,'' Licht said, per the Tampa Tribune. “I don't think we're far away.''

The Bucs, who finished 4-12, ranked 17th in total yards allowed and 21st in points allowed in 2013. New head coach Lovie Smith is a respected defensive mind who should mold this unit into a force.

Lavonte David draws Derrick Brooks comparison
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith compared linebacker Lavonte David to the greatest linebacker in franchise history, Derrick Brooks. “There’s not a lot of players like Derrick Brooks," Smith said, per ESPN.com. “It’s not even fair to compare some guys in that way. But, Lavonte David, he has a chance. He’s that younger version coming up. I hear he’s a great guy."

A first-team All-Pro, David became the seventh player in NFL history to record at least five sacks and at least five interceptions in a season, the report said. David has 283 tackles in his two-year career.

Buccaneers dealing with five injures defenders for finale
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers have five defensive players on the injury report for Week 17 against the Saints, and they could be without the majority of them Sunday. Among the five players, only Lavonte David (elbow) and defensive lineman Akeem Spence (wrist) are probable for Sunday's game.

They are joined by the injury report by linebackers Ka'Lial Glaud (knee) and Dekoda Watson (groin), along with defensive  back Mark Barron (hamstring), all of whom are questionable for the game.
