Demar Dotson (born October 11, 1985) is an American football offensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He played college football at Southern Mississippi.

Professional career[edit]

Dotson signed with the Buccaneers after going undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft.

In 2012, Dotson re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a two-year deal. On September 18, Dotson won the starting right tackle job, beating Jeremy Trueblood. On March 28, 2013, Dotson signed a new four-year contract extension.

In 2013, he was expected to compete with Gabe Carimi, whom the Bucs traded for in June 2013, for the starting position at right tackle.[1] In 2014, after starting 14 games as starting right tackle, Dotson moved to left tackle after poor performances from Anthony Collins.

In 2017, Dotson started 12 games at right tackle before being placed on injured reserve on November 29, 2017.[2]
