TAMPA, Fla (WFLA) Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Demar Dotson will return for his 10th season after the Bucs picked the one-year option on his current contract.
Dotson has played in 115 games for the Bucs during his career, startinig 91 of them. He is the longest tenured veteran on an offensive line that now has four of its five starting pieces set entering the offseason program.
On Tuesday, the Bucs signed their other starting offensive tackle Donovan Smith to a three-year contract. The only position in question is now the starting right guard spot, shared during the season by Caleb Benenoch and Alex Cappa. The Bucs will likely add a lineman to compete for that starting role in training camp.
