The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Re-Sign DL Deadrin Senat1 min read
Senat was born in Naples, Florida, and the #GoBulls Alumni; was a stand-out for green and gold. He played in 42 games for the USF Bills, where he logged 104 solo tackles, 178 combined tackles, 23.5 tackles for a loss, 7 sacks, 2 passes defended, and 2 forced fumbles.
He was impressive to NFL scouts during practices at the 2018 East-West Shrine Game; however, a knee injury kept him from playing in the game — that would not stop the Atlanta Falcons from drafting him in the 3rd round of the 2018 NFL draft. He played 3 seasons for the Falcons, 22 games, recording just 34 tackles and 1 fumble recovered, but he just never lived up to expectations due to injury. Senat was later released.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Senat before the 2022 NFL draft. The 6th-year defensive lineman played in 12 games for the Buccaneers seeing 167 snaps, recording 17 tackles, a sack, 2 tackles for a loss, and 2 hits on the QB.
Senat will help bolster the defensive line as a rotational guy, where he can make a serious impact. He could have tested the free agent waters, but he decided to in Tampa for 1 more year— right down the road from where he played college ball.
