The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Monday that they’ve signed RT Demar Dotson to a multi-year contract extension.
- According to Adam Schefter, Dotson receives a three-year, $16.5 million extension from the Buccaneers.
- Adam Caplan reports that Dotson’s new deal includes $8.5 million guaranteed and $4.25 million fully guaranteed at signing.
- This contract will keep Dotson under team control through the 2019 season.
Last year, Doctson was trying to secure a long-term extension from the Buccaneers, but unfortunately sustained an MCL sprain that led to him being placed on injured reserve with the designation to return.
Dotson, 30, signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss back in 2011. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.5 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $1.75 million for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Dotson was limited to appearing in just six games for the Buccaneers, due to the MCL sprain. In total, Dotson played 202 snaps for the Buccaneers last year, according to Pro Football Focus.
