Keith Tandy Re-Signed

March 8th, 2016

keith tandyIn a nod to the Greg Schiano-Mark Dominik regime, the Bucs re-signed pending free agent safety Keith Tandy today.

Tandy, 27, was the Bucs’ sixth-round pick in 2012. He’s performed when called upon in a reserve role, and he’s a solid cog on special teams. Tandy is one of those guys you want on a roster.

Solid no-brainer move the Bucs.

Speaking of that 2012 draft, the Bucs’ first five picks will have jobs in 2016, Mark Barron, Doug Martin, Lavonte David, Najee Goode (Eagles) and Tandy. That doesn’t happen often in the NFL, and three of those guys had great seasons last year.

Damn that Dominik!

    He is so damn good at being a GM he is still on the radio. Joe, let’s look at ALL the moves he made, ahhhh yes My Lew, Clayborn over Cam Jordan, Bowers over Houston, etc.etc.etc.

  4. cmurda Says:

    Good move. Not exactly the sexy, exciting move I was hoping for but I like Tandy.

  5. cmurda Says:

    @Thunderchunky. Like Rockstar or not, that was a phenomenal draft by him. The problem is virtually every other draft and FA acquisition was terrible.

  6. Guzzie Says:

    Tandy the big free agent signing of the day….CHAMPIONSHIP…SMDH

  7. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Yes, because the Teflon Dom was such an awesome GM.

  8. thunderchunkyPA Says:

    cmurda, that is EXACTLY my point.

    I’d like you to take a harder look at ur “dam that dominik” statement. Tell me about who Dominik drafted and their subsequent football careers or lack thereof BEFORE Schiano got there. Gerald McCoy does not count because he literally fell into the Bucs lap and it’s not like they would have passed on Suh had he not been picked by detroit. We all know who had control of the roster during the Dom/Rah era, Rah stated that publicly several times about the players he had wanted to keep but ultimately weren’t…and why did team Glazer give Dom the final say? Cause Rah was a first time HC, same with Schiano, but Schiano was fresh outta the college ranks and could personally vouch for “his guys,” All Dom had to do was listen to his HC FOR A CHANGE and pull the trigger. Dominik was as clueless as a GM could be when it came to evaluating talent, If it wasn’t for Schiano, those players would never have been drafted here, not Dominik.

    Not bad to re-sign some guys but Mario Williams was signed for 8 mil a year and Licht didn’t even show any interest! That’s a no brainer to bring him in for that price, even if he fails it’s worth the risk for 2 years!

  11. BucTrooper Says:

    Ha ha. “Jobs.” That’s what we’re gauging GM success by? I think Goode is actually the janitor in Philly.

    To read it, it’s like hearing MSNBC crow about Obama’s unemployment numbers.

  12. James Walker Says:

    Tandy has made some splash plays and is solid special teams. Tandy type players is what make a playoff roster through solid depth.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I hear Claiborne is on the market…..Since Dom’s first round star is available….I would think Joe would be lobbying to bring him back.
    2nd round pick Bowers may eventually develop and third round pick Myron Lewis may finally be our answer at CB.

  14. Guzzie Says:

    Mario getting $8 million is a blessing means Charles Johnson is around the same price, and Verner should be around $10 million unless our northern neighbors jags just blow the doors off every other teams offers, Malik Jackson $15 million a year, no thanks

  15. biff barker Says:

    Super Mario was most likely seen as a slacker and or cancer.

  17. Waterboy Says:

    Even if he only got 8 sacks that’s still a steal! What did they pay for ghost Johnson 24 mil guaranteed on a 43 mil contract for 1 year? If Williams turns out to be a slacker cut him and move on at that price.

  18. SteveK Says:

    Interesting that Tandy and Goode were the latest picks in that draft, both identified in the Big East at WVU by Greg Schiano.

    The Rutgers man knows talent, and Coach Schiano knew darn well that Josh Freeman was fake. Mark Dominick’s best decision was hiring Schiano, and letting Schiano insert his talent evaluation in his drafts w/ Dominick.

    Dominick was a great employee of the Bucs, 19 years, but his talent evaluation skills are sub-par at best.

    Schiano was a pure Jack-Ass!!

    Good for tandy.he showed more in a couple of games than I saw from Macdougald all year.If he can cover then he should get a chance to compete for starting job.Macdougald was weak in that area.Kind of funny that we let Mark Barron go and we replaced him with a player with a similar skillset only not as good.Barron probably could have been a better fit at Lansannah’s position.
    Seems like Danny fell off the map last year.

    Sorry Big Hog, but you’re wrong. Schiano’s a good dude and good coach. First go in the NFL had some bumps in the road, but the dude knows more about football than any of us ever will. He knows how to scout and recruit draft talent with some of the best even at the NFL level. Glad to see Tandy getting another contract in Tampa, he’s a solid player who certainly lived up to his 6th round selection.
