The Buccaneers’ second-leading tackler in 2014 has signed his contract offer from the club.

Linebacker Danny Lansanah, an exclusive-rights free agent, has officially signed his one-year tender from Tampa Bay. The transaction was listed in the NFL’s Thursday personnel notice.

The 29-year-old Lansanah comes off the best season of his career. The fourth-year pro from Connecticut notched 82 tackles (61 solo), starting 11-of-16 games. He could compete for a starting role at strong-side linebacker next season, with Orie Lemon potentially also in the mix.

Lansanah was one of the success stories of the United Football League, playing a three-year UFL stint (2010-2012) after five regular season games with the Green Bay Packers in 2008. He has been with the Buccaneers since December 2013.

  1. Lemon is a beast! most people that he grew up with that know him, say that he’s a younger Ray Lewis with the size of Simeon Rice. The Bucks need to get him off the practice squad and in the starting rotation this year! Granted he struggles recognizing play development, but in Lovie’s read and react defense, that shouldn’t matter.

  2. Orie Lemon was another was another Cowboy castoff. The ‘Boys tried Lemon at strong side and middle LB. To the Cowboys he was a only suited to be a career back up and became expendable. He not a bad player at all. The question was he good enough to unseat a starter. The Cowboys didn’t think so and went in another direction. Now it’s up to the Bucs to decide his roll.
