Just Grillin sponsors PewterReport.com’s Pewter Player of the Week, which is given to Tampa Bay’s MVP as selected by the PewterReport.com staff every Tuesday following the most recent game.
Prior to the start of the 2015 campaign, the Buccaneers extended the contract of weakside linebacker Lavonte David, making him the highest paid outside linebacker in the NFL with a five-year, $50.25-million deal. David has raised eyebrows with an up-and-down season thus far, dropping an interception against Carolina and missing four tackles against the New York Giants.
But against Dallas in Tampa Bay’s 10-6 victory on Sunday, David had a game-high 12 tackles, a tackle for loss, a pass breakup and a sack – his second of the year. David also did a great job of occupying a blocker on middle linebacker Kwon Alexander’s sack.
For his efforts, David is this week’s Just Grillin Pewter Player of the Week.
After the win, Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy acknowledged David’s improved performance.
“Like I said earlier in the week, the best players have to be on their A-game, if you are going to win and we knew we had to pick it up,” McCoy said. “Me and him actually sat down to talked one-on-one and we knew we just had to play a lot harder and I think we accomplished that today and it showed with how well the defense played.”
David, who has had four games with double-digit tackles, helped the Bucs defense hold the Cowboys offense to just 216 yards and two fields, which were season-lows for a Tampa Bay opponent this year.
“Guys did a heck of a job playing with maximum effort and just controlling what they can control and doing their job,” David said after the game. “You have to take your hat off to everybody for a collective effort and the way we put this performance together, it was everybody involved.”
David leads Tampa Bay with 81 tackles and has six pass breakups, four tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble on the year.
Because he’s this week’s Just Grillin Pewter Player of the Week, David will receive a certificate $50 gift certificate to Just Grillin in Carrollwood.
