Lavonte David Finally Receives the National Attention He Deserves


If you follow me on twitter (@nicksitro, shameless plug) you know that I have been campaigning for Lavonte David for some time now.

Drafted in the same year as Bobby Wagner and Luke Kuechly, David has amassed more solo tackles, tackles for loss, sacks, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries.

And yet, David has been invited to only one pro-bowl. This is disrespect at the highest level.

But alas, it looks like the national disrespect is slowly fading. Peter Schrager on Good Morning Football discussed how the addition of Tom Brady effects the rest of the team. He specifically mentioned Lavonte David as a player to keep an eye on.

If the Buccaneers get a slew of prime times games this Fall, you can expect even more love to come Davids way. It’s about time the most underrated player in the NFL gets the love he deserves.
