The Buccaneers have checked another item on the offseason list.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers have signed third-rounder Chris Godwin, the last of their draft picks to reach contract terms.

Godwin might have a hard time getting many passes thrown his way this year after the addition of DeSean Jackson to go with Mike Evans, but the Bucs put an emphasis on surrounding quarterback Jameis Winston with weapons for the present and future.

The 6-foot-1, 209-pound Godwin was a consistent performer at Penn State, but made a name for himself in the Rose Bowl, when he caught nine passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns in his final game.

    Game is 60 minutes and it gets hot in Tampa; I’m sure we can substitute him in and he will get plenty of opportunity to shine

    Chris Godwin is going to be a good player. He is a good kid from Middletown, DE and had a great career at Penn State catching passes from a QB who may not be much of an NFL prospect.

    Too many teams slept on this guy. I think he will surprise a lot of people.

    How he fell to the 3rd round is beyond me. Almost as big of a steal as O.J. Howard at #19
