Tandy collected 12 tackles (10 solo), including one for loss, and notched a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran safety finished off the season in fine fashion, racking up 40 tackles (30 solo) over the final four games. Tandy also racked up four picks over the last five contests of the campaign, victimizing Cam Newton twice on Sunday and posting a career-best figure in that category overall in 2016. Despite having set a then career high in tackles in 2015, Tandy's re-signing in March 2016 was primarily for depth purposes, as well as his solid special teams work. However, given his play in the latter stages of the campaign, the fifth-year pro figures to be heavily in the mix for a potential starting safety spot in 2017, the second year of his two-year, $1.85 million contract.

Tandy tallied 14 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Chris Conte's return, Tandy saw plenty of playing time and ended up checking in second only to Kwon Alexander's remarkable 21 stops on the night. The veteran safety has played at an outstanding level over the last two weeks, amassing a combined 23 tackles, a tackle for loss and an interception over that span.

Tandy was credited with a team-high nine tackles (eight solo), including one for loss, an interception, and two additional passes defensed in Sunday's 16-11 win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Stepping in once again for Chris Conte (chest), Tandy came through at a crucial juncture for the second consecutive week. He adeptly cut in front of a Drew Brees pass intended for Willie Snead at the Saints' 47-yard line with 57 seconds remaining, sealing the Bucs' fifth straight win. The tackles were a season high for the fifth-year veteran, who was a key part of a defensive effort that limited Brees to 6.3 yards per attempt and the formidable running back duo of Tim Hightower and Mark Ingram to 45 yards rushing on 13 carries. Even if Conte is unable to return in time of the Week 15 battle against the Cowboys, the free safety position appears to be in very good hands, given Tandy's body of work the last two games.

Tandy totaled five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Filling in for the sidelined Chris Conte (chest), Tandy turned in a gave-saving play when he picked off Philip Rivers at the Bucs' two-yard line with 3:04 remaining and Tampa protecting a 28-21 lead. It was the fifth-year safety's fifth career interception and first of 2016, as he's spent the season backing up Conte. His stay in the starting lineup could be short-lived, however, as Conte could return for the Week 14 tilt against the Saints.

Tandy (calf) is marked as questionable for Monday's game.

EDGE Analysis

Tandy practiced in full Saturday which bodes well for his game status Monday. Regardless, Tandy is only expected to function as a depth secondary player if available. Ryan Smith could see an increase in snaps if Tandy doesn't suit up.

Tandy turned in what head coach Dirk Koetter called the "play of the day" with a spectacular pass deflection Friday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The fifth-year defensive back, currently slotted behind Bradley McDougald on the strong safety depth chart, knocked down a Mike Glennon deep pass intended for Adam Humphries. The latter had gotten wide open on a double move on cornerback Johnthan Banks, but Tandy was able to get on his horse and hustle over from the middle of the field to deflect the ball. "That was a great play by Tandy," Koetter said. "That ball was about 50 yards down the field. For Tandy to show that range, that's unusual for an NFL safety to overlap and make that play so that was a really nice play."

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

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.

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.
