The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Thursday that they’ve signed second-round DE Noah Spence to a four-year contract.
Spence wound up being selected with the No. 39 overall pick by the Buccaneers. There was talk that he could end up being a first-round pick, considering that some evaluators believed he was the best pure pass-rusher in the draft.
However, the Buccaneers manged to get him on day two of the draft and now have a solid pass-rusher to develop in the coming years.
According to OverTheCap.com, Spence receives a four-year contract worth $6,036,312 to go along with a signing bonus of $2,590,044.
During his one year at Eastern Kentucky, Spence recorded 63 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two recoveries
