  • David recorded 11 tackles (five solo) and defensed a pass in the Buccaneers' 31-29 win over the Cowboys on Thursday night. The veteran linebacker was also credited with a hit on Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott while pacing the team in tackles on the night. By all accounts, the ultra-reliable David had a strong training camp, making his quick start to the new season relatively unsurprising. The 10-year pro will next set his sights on helping slow down the revamped Falcons offense in a Week 2 matchup a week from Sunday.

  • David has agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract extension with the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The talented linebacker thus is off the market as free agency approaches. The 31-year-old, who entered the NFL as a second-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 2012, racked up an IDP-worthy 117 tackles (82 solo) in 2020, to go along with 1.5 sacks and an interception in 16 games. Now that he's back in the fold, David will reprise his starting inside linebacker role with the Bucs this coming season.

  • David totaled six tackles (all solo) and defensed two passes during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday. The veteran linebacker was one of the true feel-good stories of the victory, considering David endured some lean years with the franchise after being drafted in the second round back in 2012. The 31-year-old eclipsed the century mark in tackles for the fourth consecutive season in 2020, racking up 117 stops (82 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, five additional defensed passes, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 16 games. David followed up those elite numbers with a tally of 26 tackles, one sack and four defensed passes over Tampa Bay's four-game postseason run, leaving him primed for a potentially large payday from either the Bucs or elsewhere as he heads into unrestricted free agency.

  • David (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for the Super Bowl, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. David came off the field for only seven defensive snaps throughout the regular season and has yet to miss a down in the playoffs. There was never any real doubt he'd be able to play through the hamstring injury.

  • David (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. David is nursing a minor hamstring injury, but his ability to take part in Wednesday's session in some capacity would seem to signal that he has a good chance at playing Sunday in the Super Bowl LV matchup with the Chiefs. Through the entire regular season and playoffs, David has yet to miss a game this year. He's played 100 percent of the Buccaneers' defensive snaps in all but two contests.
