The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed their first 2006 draft pick Wednesday, inking seventh-round selection, tight end Tim Massaquoi, to his rookie contract.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 6-foot-4, 248-pound Massaquoi entered the league as the Bucs’ third and final seventh-round pick (244th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft.
Massaquoi played collegiately at Michigan and started 29 of the 47 games he played in. He caught 46 career passes for 489 yards and two touchdowns.
In order to make room for Massaquoi on their offseason roster, the Bucs released TE/long snapper Boone Stutz.
The Bucs are currently in negotiations with their remaining nine draft picks and plan to ink them to deals before the team reports to training camp on July 27.
