RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The veteran tackle's 2015 season was cut short by a torn pectoral in early November, but he was on pace for a career-high 80 stops before the injury. McDonald didn't record any sacks last year for first time since 2012, however, but considering he only played in six games, the complete absence of quarterback takedowns is likely an outlier. The 29-year-old could see a boost for sack opportunities in 2016 due to the attention opposing blockers will be forced to pay the Bucs' considerably improved outside pass-rushing talent.

2015

McDonald is expected to start alongside Gerald McCoy at defensive tackle.

2014

McDonald was signed to help shore up the Bucs' DT rotation after recording 35 tackles, 5.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery for the Seahawks last season.
