CLINTON MCDONALD RUMORS

National confidence level in Tampa Bay Bucs rises after preseason Week 3

The dress rehearsals are in the books; at least that’s how the NFL likes to position the third week of the preseason. And to some extent, it’s accurate; more than at any time during the exhibition season, starters around the league play, some even into the second half. Thus, there are things to be learned from what transpired this week. The results on the field were the best...

Clinton McDonald already paying dividends for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A lot of ink has been spilled over the changes that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made this offseason. Most of it has been focused on new head coach Lovie Smith and his hand-picked quarterback Josh McCown. One guy who has mostly flown under the radar is defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, who the Bucs signed away from the Seattle Seahawks in March to a four-year, $12 million deal. Seattle...

Buccaneers jump out to big lead, coast past Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Defensive tackle Clinton McDonald provided quarterback Josh McCown and the rebuilt Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offense a hand in helping run up the score on the slow-starting Buffalo Bills. McDonald returned a fumble 17 yards for a touchdown and McCown directed two scoring drives in a 27-14 preseason win Saturday. Doug Martin scored on a 1-yard run and McCown...

Bucs' McCoy poised for big season if Johnson, McDonald can contribute

TAMPA, Fla. -- Gerald McCoy was dominant against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night, a sight that was obvious to anyone with a basic understanding of the sport. He was quick off the snap. He was fast with his feet. He was unforgiving in his pursuit of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He forced a fumble early in the second quarter that resulted in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' first...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers d-line poised for big things in 2015

One of the many problems that plagued the 2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ team was their lack of pass rushing efficiency. According to Football Outsiders, the Bucs ranked 25th in the NFL in terms of getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks in 2013. That number is terribly low and accurately reflects the abysmal 4-12 season. That will all change this year, though, with the new...

Seahawks must replace Clinton McDonald through the draft

So far this offseason the Seahawks have seen a number of players sign with new teams. The biggest losses have been on the defensive line. Red Bryant and Chris Clemons have signed with the Jacksonville Seaguars, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers poached defensive tackle Clinton McDonald. That last item is in my opinion the hardest blow to the Super bowl champions. Bryant and Clemons will...

Seattle Seahawks sign DT Tony McDaniel

This is very similar to the deal that the Buccaneers gave Clinton McDonald. Like McDonald, Tony McDaniel was a little thought of defensive tackle before this season, playing 590 snaps in 2011 and 2012 combined, but broke out this season with the Seahawks (though McDaniel came from Miami, while McDonald moved up Seattle’s depth chart). McDaniel is a couple of years older, but I...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign DT Clinton McDonald

Clinton McDonald was a 7th round pick in 2009 and played just 794 snaps in his career before this season. He was actually cut by the Seahawks in final cuts and re-signed in mid-September. Given that, it might seem weird that McDonald is getting a 12 million dollar deal over 4 years from the Buccaneers now here in March, but McDonald had a very solid season as one of the cogs on a...

Buccaneers free agency week one

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have scored a high grade in my book for week one of free agency. A solid B+ after big pick ups to bolster their defense, including the front line with former Cincinnati Bengal Michael Johnson, beefy defensive tackle Clinton McDonald coming over from the Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Linebackers got some help with the signing of former New England Patriot...

Buccaneers Sign DT Clinton McDonald To A Four-Year Contract

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Buccaneers have signed former Seahawks DT Clinton McDonald to a four-year contract worth $12 million. McDonald, 27, should provide the Buccaneers another pass rusher next to DT Gerald McCoy and DE Michael Johnson. We had McDonald listed as the No. 36 free agent in our  Top 100 Free Agents List.
