The Bucs re-signed Tandy on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccanneers official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The fifth-year West Virginia product tallied a career-high 42 tackles (28 solo) in 2015, along with a sack, a pass defensed and two tackles for loss. Tandy's positional versatility allowed him to make two starts at safety last season, and also saw time as a nickel back. The 27-year-old has also been highly valuable on special teams, having recorded 14 special teams tackles over his first four seasons.

Tandy posted 11 tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old posted a second consecutive double-digit tackle game, once again maximizing the opportunity afforded him by Chris Conte's season-ending knee injury. The four-year pro's solid play over the final two weeks may have served as either incentive for Tampa to consider resigning the unrestricted free agent, or as an audition for a possible starting job elsewhere in the league in 2016.

Tandy tallied 10 tackles (seven solo), including one for loss, in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Bears.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The fourth-year pro got the starting nod in place of the injured Chris Conte (knee) and acquitted himself favorably, notching a career-high 10 stops on the afternoon. Tandy's starting opportunities have been few and far between in his four-year Bucs tenure, but he'll get the call again in the season finale against the Panthers if Conte is unable to suit up.

Bucs sixth-round pick Keith Tandy saw more practice time at safety as Tampa's offseason workouts progressed.

The Buccaneers are viewing Tandy as a versatile defensive back who will likely also play extensively on special teams. "He's played nickel, dime, safety and corner," explained coach Greg Schiano. "He's played all four, and done it with some efficiency. Certainly not perfect, but some efficiency."

Buccaneers signed sixth-round DB Keith Tandy to a four-year contract.

Tandy isn't particularly big or fast, but he can make plays on the football (13 interceptions in three college seasons) and is willing to mix it up physically. After giving Greg Schiano fits in the Big East, the Bucs had to have him. Tandy is expected to move from corner to safety in the not-distant future.

The Buccaneers believe that sixth-round CB Keith Tandy's best position in the future might be safety.

Tandy will open rookie minicamps as a cornerback, but he could eventually push FS Cody Grimm and/or earn the Bucs' third safety role as soon as training camp. Tampa Bay is starved for depth at both defensive back positions, so Tandy's versatility will come in handy. At 5'10/200, Tandy ran 4.51 at his Pro Day.
