Another Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft pick will sign his contract.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins on a four-year contract, per Scott Smith. The Washington prospect will sign his contract tomorrow. Seferian-Jenkinsn has the potential to turn into an explosive receiver and quality blocker, providing some versatility the Buccaneers lack at the tight end position. That is, if everything goes right.

According to Over The Cap's estimates on rookie contracts, which have been spot on so far, he will likely have signed a four-year, $5,254,928 contract including a $2,141,768 signing bonus. In addition, the base salaries of his first two years are likely guaranteed, as that's the deal Manti Te'o received at the same pick last year. Seferian-Jenkins will have base salaries of $420,000 in 2014, $658,860 in 2015, $897,720 in 2016 and $1,136,580 in 2017.

Alongside Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, ASJ will be the main part of the Dunkaneers offense that is likely to be highly prolific in the red zone. At 6'6", 260 lbs, he has the perfect size to be a weapon for the Bucs, and with a 4.5 40-yard dash time, he certainly has the speed, too.

With Seferian-Jenkins set to sign his contract tomorrow, the Bucs will have signed every one of their draft picks, wrapping up that suspense-free part of the offseason.
