The Buccaneers placed the franchise tag on Winfield on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Winfield's franchise tag positions him to earn $17.1 million to play for Tampa Bay on a one-year deal for the 2024 season, but he and the Buccaneers are reportedly using it as a bridge to come to terms on a true long-term extension, negotiations which both sides have until mid-July to complete. Across 17 regular-season games the All-Pro safety recorded 122 tackles (76 solo), six sacks, three interceptions, 12 passes defensed, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

Thrives in contract year

Winfield finished the 2023 regular season with 122 tackles (76 solo), including six sacks, three interceptions, an additional nine passes defensed, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries across 17 regular-season games. He added five tackles (four solo) and a pass defensed in two postseason contests.

The fourth-year safety's tackle, interception, pass defensed, forced fumbles and fumble recovery totals all qualified as career highs. Winfield certainly picked an opportune time for a breakout campaign, considering he's set to hit free agency at the start of the new league year in March. However, given his importance to the Buccaneers' defense, it would appear likely the team makes a serious attempt to retain him before he enters the open market.

Records sack in season finale

Winfield recorded five sacks (four solo), including a sack, in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Winfield's tackle total checked in third on the afternoon for the Buccaneers, and it included his career-high sixth sack of the season. The fourth-year safety established new personal bests in tackles (122), interceptions (three), passes defensed (12), forced fumbles (six) and fumble recoveries (four) across 17 games, and he'll be a key asset once again when he faces the Eagles in Monday night's home wild-card matchup.

Seven tackles in loss

Winfield had seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Saints.

David was one of three Bucs defenders to register seven total tackles Sunday. The 2020 second-round pick out of Minnesota has 117 tackles (73 solo), including 5.0 sacks, 12 passes defended, three interceptions, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries -- all career highs -- over 16 games this season.

Picks off pass in victory

Winfield notched three tackles (all solo), including one sack, and added an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 30-12 win over Jacksonville.

Winfield tied his season-low mark in stops, but he nonetheless played a significant part in Tampa Bay's victory. The star safety intercepted a Trevor Lawrence pass in the second quarter, sacked Lawrence later in the period, and recovered an Evan Engram fumble in the fourth. Winfield entered the weekend deemed questionable due to a calf injury, but he played 67 percent of the Buccaneers' defensive snaps Sunday and appeared to come away without any setbacks.

Cleared to play versus Jacksonville

Winfield (calf) is Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Scott reports.

Winfield was added to the Bucs' injury report Friday with a calf issue and was questionable for Sunday's game. He's been cleared to play and has not missed a game this season. Winfield has a career-high 107 tackles (65 solo), including 4.0 sacks, and two interceptions over 14 games this season.

Pops up on Friday injury report

Winfield (calf) did not participate in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

Winfield as a full participant in the first two practices of the week, but didn't practice Friday and his status for Sunday's game is now up in the air. If he's unable to suit up, Dee Delaney or Kaevon Merriweather are candidates to suit up as the starting free safety alongside strong safety Ryan Neal.

Another dominant effort Sunday

Winfield recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Winfield didn't have a hand in any sacks or turnovers, but he provided a team-leading tackle total that also marked his fourth double-digit tally of the campaign. Winfield has been on a stretch-run tear this season, as he's now averaging 10.4 tackles per contest in his last five games, a stretch during which he's also compiled two sacks, two forced fumbles and four defensed passes, including an interception.

Continues impressive streak

Winfield made eight tackles (four solo), one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 29-25 win over the Falcons.

Winfield has continues to build upon his momentum, with 42 total tackles across his last four appearances, in addition to two sacks, four passes defensed, one interception and one forced fumble. The four-year veteran will look to continue building upon what's already a career season on the road against Green Bay in Week 15.
