News: David recored five tackles (three solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's season-ending loss to the Saints.
Impact: Tampa's top linebacker, David finished the 2015 campaign with 146 tackles (98 solo), one sack and no interceptions. The lack of sacks � and the fact David was among several notable players snubbed from the Pro Bowl � is likely attributable to his role as weakside 'backer for Lovie Smith's 4-3 defense. The 24-year-old is seldem used in pass-rushing situations and is primarily deployed as the team's top run stopper. With David and Gerald McCoy, the Buccaneers have two of the league's best defenders plugged in as pieces of what should be a much-improved unit next year.
