According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers are re-signing at least one of the members of their unrestricted free agency safety duo, for now, and the one that has been made known first is Chris Conte.

Conte signed a two-year deal to be back with the Bucs worth $5 million as a base salary with incentives in the contract that could push it up the $7 million total. $2.5 million of the total contract is guaranteed. 

Conte, who began the year as one of the Bucs starting safeties, struggled early on before injuring his back mid-season. In his absence, Keith Tandy came in and performed so well that he maintained Conte’s starting role when Conte returned. However, Conte still played in a rotational role, and played much better than he did early on.

At the Combine last weekend, both head coach Dirk Koetter and general manager Jason Licht were open to the idea of brining back both Conte and Bradley McDougald. So this signing shouldn’t change much in terms of a desire to bring back McDougald as well, knowing they need safety depth as much as they need talent.

drdneast; seriously? You actually think, I think, I’m smarter/knowing more than Licht? I’m not even in his ball park! I’m just a Buc fan since 1976. I thought this was a site where we are open to everyone’s opinion. All I’m saying ” how much we pay players now” is because we have a dozen or more big contracts coming up in the next couple years. Also, as we win more games and make the Playoffs the players will demand much more money as their contracts enter the Restricted Player “arena.

Another good signing, this dude gets after it on the field. I’ve never seen Conte take plays off, he’s a hustler, and leaves it all out on the field.
