Kadeem Edwards signs contract with Buccaneers

Brian Blanco

The latest draft pick to sign his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is guard Kadeem Edwards.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced that fifth-round rookie Kadeem Edwards has signed his rookie contract. The guard out of Tennessee State University is likely to be a backup this season, owing to his raw technique and self-professed to add muscle to his frame, but he has the potential to be a starter down the road. 

As mandated by the CBA, Kadeem Edwards will have signed a four-year contract. Over The Cap estimates his contract to be worth $2,432,000 with a $212,000 signing bonus, and salaries of $420,000, $510,000, $600,000 and $690,000 over the four years of his contract. If this contract follows the usual provisions at that draft slot, none of those salaries will be guaranteed. 

Earlier today, the Bucs signed sixth-rounder Robert Herron to a contract as well. The Bucs have a second fifth-rounder in Kevin Pamphile and their first three draft picks yet to sign. The 2011 CBA leaves little room to negotiate, which means the Bucs shouldn't have many problems getting their draft picks under contract.
