The Buccaneers re-signed linebacker Devante Bond to a one-year deal, as Jenna Laine of ESPN.com tweets. It’s a one-year deal for the league minimum, so it won’t put a dent in the Bucs’ limited cap space.
Bond, 26 in July, has appeared in 25 games (six starts) for the Bucs over the last two seasons. In 2018, he registered 22 total tackles, which more than quintupled his showing from 2017.
The Bond deal marks the Bucs’ second move of the day, though it pales in comparison to the first. On Tuesday morning, the Bucs re-upped offensive tackle Donovan Smith on a three-year, $41.25MM deal with $27MM guaranteed.
