RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Tandy returns for a fifth season with the team that drafted him after inking a one-year deal in March. The West Virginia product tallied a career-high 42 tackles (28 solo) in 2015 and his positional versatility allowed him to make two starts at safety while also seeing time on the nickel.

Depth safety who showed some ability with 40 tackles in a mostly reserve role as a rookie in 2013. He will be hard pressed to match that production in 2014 with the likes of Major Wright around now.
