The Buccaneers have placed a first-round tender on DE Michael Bennett, according to ESPN's Pat Yasinskas.
The tender is expected to be worth around $2.7 million.
Bennett came into the league as an undrafted free agent. He started 10 games last season and recorded four sacks.
According to Yasinskas, the Bucs also placed a right-of-first refusal tender on OL Demar Dotson and tendered their two exclusive-rights free agents, RB LeGarrette Blount and WR Preston Parker.
