Lavonte David rumors: 5 best fits in free agency
Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lafonte David will be one of the most sought-after players in free agency, which is why these teams will be lucky to sign him.
If anyone is a pillar of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it’s Lavonte David.
David has always been underrated and overlooked in a small market, and he is consistently one of the best players in the NFL. He has had 100+ tackles and a 10+ TFL score in nine of his 11 NFL seasons. Last year, David finished the season with 124 tackles, 10 TFL’s, three sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
That’s why his projected value is around $9.7 million according to Spotrac, but David will likely be paid more than that. The teams that want him will have to pay, and while he said he wants the Pirate to retire, the team may not be able to make that possible given their current situation.
Here are Lavonte David’s top five occasions as he explores his NFL future in free agency.

5. Dallas Cowboys
According to recent reports, the Dallas Cowboys are making “no progress” toward finalizing a deal for quarterback Leighton Vander Esch.
It’s not encouraging news for Vander Esch fans, but an encouraging development for David if he’s interested in signing with the Cowboys.
The 33-year-old David could coach the Cowboys defense team and mentor young stars like Micah Parsons, not to mention the flexibility that David’s inside coverage would provide Parsons as a rushing forward.
