Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David currently ranks third on the team's all-time takeaway list with 41 (18 forced fumbles, 13 fumble recoveries and 10 interceptions) in seven seasons.
Huddle Up: David also is a tackling machine, averaging 126.2 combined stops a season and is a definite top-15 IDP consideration.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David agreed to a five-year contract extension, the team confirmed Sunday, Aug. 9. The extension is worth $50.25 million with $25.56 million guaranteed, according to David's agent Ron Butler.
Huddle Up: The deal makes David the highest-paid 4-3 outside linebacker in the league, and as many IDP league owners can attest, he may be worth it after averaging 140 total tackles and recording 10 sacks, six interceptions and six forced fumbles over his first three seasons in Tampa.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. CB Alterraun Verner (hamstring) was limited.
Huddle Up: Definite IDP league alert here as David, the Bucs' leading tackler, sat out entirely Thursday after getting in limited work Wednesday. Friday will be an important day.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG Carl Nicks (foot) did not practice Friday, Dec. 27, and has been ruled out for the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints. LB Dekoda Watson (groin) did not practice, while LB Ka'lial Glaud (knee) and SS Mark Barron (hamstring) were limited. Barron, Glaud and Watson are each questionable. LB Lavonte David (elbow), OG Davin Joseph (knee) and DT Akeem Spence (wrist) each were full participants in practice and are considered probable.
Huddle Up: David was snubbed in the Pro Bowl voting announced Friday, but IDP owners know his worth as he has 5 interceptions, 6 sacks and at least 9 total tackles in 10 of his last 11 games.
