BUCCANEERS EXERCISE TEAM OPTIONS FOR THREE PLAYERS

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that the team has exercised one-year options for safety Chris Conte, tackle Demar Dotson and defensive back Josh Robinson, extending each player’s contract through the 2018 season.
 
Conte (6-2, 203) played in all 16 games for Tampa Bay last season, starting 14, finishing third on the team with 76 tackles, while adding eight passes defensed, a career-high three forced fumbles and one interception. In three seasons with the Buccaneers, Conte has started 38-of-44 games played, registering 218 tackles, 19 passes defensed, five interceptions (returned 69 yards, one touchdown), five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
 
Dotson (6-9, 315) started all 11 games he played last year. The longest-tenured current Buccaneer, Dotson is entering his 10th season with Tampa Bay. During that time, he has played in 100 games, starting 76.
 
Robinson (5-10, 200) was Tampa Bay’s special teams captain in 2017, recording five special teams tackles and one forced fumble on special teams, which was recovered and returned for a touchdown. In 2016, Robinson led the Buccaneers with 12 special teams tackles, all solo, which tied for the third-most in the NFL.
