Third-round pick Adolphus Washington signed his rookie contract with the Bills Tuesday.

A three-year starter at Ohio State, Washington can play multiple spots across the defensive line. He had 13.5 sacks in his career and four last season.

Washington was a key contributor on Ohio State’s 2014 national championship team and played in the Senior Bowl last January. He was suspended for his final college game, last January’s Fiesta Bowl, after he was arrested on a solicitation charge while in possession of a gun. The suspension was for carrying the firearm; the solicitation charge was eventually dismissed.

The Bills have now signed four of their seven draft choices.
