Buccaneers contract-year DT Akeem Spence wants to stay in Tampa Bay beyond this season.
"I would love to stay in Tampa," said Spence. "I have been here helping to build this thing and definitely want to see this thing through all the way." Spence also said he's excited to be working with new DC Mike Smith while adding that his confidence is "through the roof" heading into the last year of his rookie deal. The 24-year-old was limited to eight games last season while battling back and ankle injuries. He was also suspended a game for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Jul 1 - 3:45 PM
