In an offseason that has been filled with the Buccaneers taking care of their own, the latest to get their new contract is safety Keith Tandy, who signed a two-year deal with the Bucs on Wednesday.

Tandy has been with the Buccaneers since 2012 where he was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL draft.

Tandy has been an off-and-on starter for the Buccaneers, most notable at the end of the 2016 campaign where his key interceptions boosted the Buccaneers to wins over the Chargers, Saints and Panthers. Due to injury and additions to the roster, Tandy didn’t see much playing time in 2017, but he will likely get a better shot at that, and a chance to build off his 2016 season, in 2018.

I am thrilled. He is the best Special Teams Player we have, and he can not only play either Safety Position as he has proven in the past when he has subbed for injured players, but at West Virginia he played CB and if we fail to sign an outstanding CB to play with Grimes this year, I feel certain that Tandy Man could star at the other CB position all season. He is fast and tackles well too and is tough. We all know as well what a good playmaker he is as well. It is too bad that… Read more »

Actually FLBoy84, safety play, except for JT Ward, was not a problem last year. The extended time the GB had to throw the ball was the biggest problem and the biggest reason for the majority of the losses.

Good resigning. Not sure why TB hasn’t given Tandy a shot at more playing time. It was pretty eye popping to see those 4 Ints in 5 games at the end of the 2016 season and was pretty sure he’d get the nod before Ward came in.

I agree JustaBuck!
Tandy is a Smart player. He seems to be in the right place at the right time. I was unaware he was injured last year. He also helps other players in the right place just ask VH3.

When I watched Tandy last year I saw nothing special about him. If he’s just a body to fill a spot and didn’t cost much, then okay. He’s strictly a backup and special-teams Guy who was fortunate to have one very good game in 2016.

Tandy should be a starter.
