Bradley McDougald was an undrafted free agent signed by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013. The Buccaneers quickly added him after the Chiefs released him in May of that year. During his four years at Tampa Bay, McDougald has collected 186 tackles, 5 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery, and 21 passes defended. That is a pretty good line for someone that wasn’t drafted.
Unfortunately, over the past couple of years, the Buccaneers had seen signs of struggling from their safety position. McDougald gave Tampa little reprieve. Although McDougald was second on the team in tackles, with 92, last season, and both he and Conte had become free agents this offseason, Tampa saw fit to keep one over the other resulting in McDougald being signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
Mcdougal will be more than motivated to standout in Seattle as he has a chip on his shoulder and could easily make a name for himself in the Emerald City much like he had in Tampa. Although he will most likely play backup to Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas, do not think for a second that McDouglad will not see adequate playing time.
We wish him the best of luck, as I am sure the Buccaneers organization does.
