BUCCANEERS SIGN T DOTSON TO FOUR-YEAR DEAL

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have signed T Demar Dotson to a four-year deal.

Dotson played in all 16 games last season, starting the final 15 games at right tackle. He was a key member of the Buccaneers offensive line, which tied for the third-fewest sacks allowed in the NFL in 2012, and helped QB Josh Freeman set team records in passing yards (4,065) and passing touchdowns (27). Dotson also helped block for Pro Bowl RB Doug Martin, who rushed for the second-most yards (1,454) and touchdowns (11) in franchise history.


Dotson originally joined the Buccaneers as a college free agent in 2009, and has played in 38 career games with 17 starts.
