The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are acting fast to get their draft picks signed, with Da’Quan Bowers the latest to reach a deal.
Bowers confirmed on Twitter that the deal is done.
“Feels good to finally be a buc officially,” Bowers tweeted. “Dotted line signed.”
A defensive end from Clemson, Bowers was projected by some as a potential first overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. But after questions surfaced about his knee, Bowers’ stock plummeted, and he ended up falling to the Bucs in the second round, at No. 51 overall.
The Buccaneers haven’t been active in free agency, but they have been active in signing picks. They were the first team to sign any draft pick when they reached a deal with Mason Foster, and they were the first team to sign a first-rounder when they inked Adrian Clayborn.
