TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed fifth-round draft pick Najee Goode and sixth-round selection Keith Tandy to four-year contracts.
Goode and Tandy were college teammates at West Virginia and are being counted on to help improve one of the weakest defenses in the NFL. Goode will compete for playing time as a rookie at outside linebacker, while Tandy is a cornerback.
Goode was the 140th overall selection in the draft. The Bucs took Tandy with the 174th pick.
