TAMPA — The Buccaneers ushered in a first to the 2011-12 NFL Season: they became the first team to sign their first round draft pick.
The Bucs locked up first round pick Adrian Clayborn early Wednesday morning, the first official day that teams can sign players they have the rights to.
Clayborn signed a multi-year deal, the detail of which will be released later. So far all that is known is that Clayborn signed a four year contract with a team option for a fifth year according to Clayborn’s agent Blake Baratz. With the new rookie pay scale in effect thanks to the new CBA, Clayborn’s contract won’t be a mammoth undertaking for the Bucs.
