Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians will have the bookends of his offensive line intact for the near future.
While the Buccaneers didn't disclose the full financial details, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Dotson is due $4.725 million in 2019.
The 33-year-old Dotson returns as the longest-tenured player on the Buccaneers' offensive line. He joined the Buccaneers in 2009 and has appeared in 115 games with 91 starters on his career. The Buccaneers will have stability at both tackle positions heading to the 2019 season, as Dotson and Smith combined to start 31 of 32 games at both spots in 2018.
Tampa Bay has done more than a share of ensuring quarterback Jameis Winston will have familiar faces in front of him.
