TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ entire draft class has been signed.
The team announced the signing of tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins to a four-year deal on Thursday, the final member of the Bucs’ six-member draft class to ink a contract. The deal reportedly is worth $5.254 million, with $3.22 million guaranteed.
Seferian-Jenkins, a Washington product, was taken in the second round, 38th overall. He started 35 of 38 career games in college, and he finished his career there with 146 catches for 1,840 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns.
At 6-foot-5, 262 pounds, many considered Seferian-Jenkins to be a value selection early in the second round. Along with wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, both 6-foot-5, Seferian-Jenkins will add height to the Bucs’ pass-catching options next season in their first year under coach Lovie Smith.
