TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Seventh-round draft pick Cody Grimm has agreed to a four-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The son of Arizona Cardinals assistant head coach and former Washington Redskins guard Russ Grimm was the first of Tampa Bay's three seventh-round selections.

Grimm was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference linebacker at Virginia Tech last season, however the Bucs intend to use Grimm as a safety.

To make room on the roster, undrafted free-agent safety Dennis Rogan was released Thursday.
