The Buccaneers signed first-round pick Mike Evans and third-round pick Charles Sims on Thursday and they’ll get the final member of their draft class to sign his four-year deal on Friday.
The team announced that tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has agreed to terms on a four-year contract and that he will sign that contract in Tampa on Friday. Once he does, the Bucs will have signed all of their 2014 draft picks.
The Bucs have already wrapped up their offseason work after winding things down with this week’s minicamp, but Seferian-Jenkins hasn’t been able to do much. He was limited at the team’s rookie minicamp while recovering from foot surgery and league rules forced him to miss the remainder of the spring work because Washington had not finished its academic year.
That may hinder Seferian-Jenkins’ attempts to get on the field a lot as a rookie, especially with veterans Brandon Myers, Tim Wright and Luke Stocker already on the roster and able to work in Jeff Tedford’s offense this spring. Seferian-Jenkins has more potential upside than any of those players, though, so the Bucs will likely give him a chance to catch up quickly once camp is underway.
