It sounds like Lavonte David is getting closer to becoming a Buc for life.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network dropped a tweet Friday stating the Bucs and the nine-year veteran have been quietly working on an extension.

LVD is one of the best all-around linebackers in the league and an ultimate fan-favorite. He also shows no signs of slowing down after recording a 123-tackle season in 2019 — which is the most he’s had since 2015.

David has started 121 games over the course of eight seasons, recording 1,008 combined tackles, 22.5 sacks, 116 tackles for loss, 11 interceptions, 21 forced fumbles, 14 fumble recoveries, and 45 pass break-ups.

Stay tuned for updates.
