The Bucs kept much of their Super Bowl winning band together this offseason and they are getting a jump on making sure they can do the same for 2022.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that left tackle Donovan Smith has agreed to a two-year extension with the team. The extension has a value of $31.8 million and Smith will see $30 million in guaranteed money over the next two years.

Smith was due to make a $14.25 million base salary in the final year of the three-year deal he signed with the Bucs in 2019.

Smith was a second-round pick in 2015 and took over as a starter from the start of his rookie season. He has only missed two games since that point and the hope in Tampa is that the next three years will see the same kind of durability at left tackle.

  1. Really? Way too much money for a guy that only looked good because Gronk had to help block for him all year. But this most likely rules out drafting another OT in the first round and will hopefully get some more depth along the defensive line. Wirfs fell to them last year, maybe Barmore will fall to them this year.

  2. hopefully he won’t get injured or his other teammates on the offensive line like what happened to the Packers and Chiefs.

    More luck will be needed for them to repeat again.

  3. Brady brought his salary cap cheating methods through his TB12 foundation to tampa. What a sham. How are they not over the salary cap? Goodell protecting and cheating for his son brady just like the patriot days. A true disgrace to sports that this blatant cheating is allowed.

  4. He’s never made the pro bowl, but keeps getting paid like a top Tackle in the league. He is an ok OT but he isn’t worth what the Bucs have been paying him. They could upgrade this position instead.
