Buccaneers, Devin White agree to rookie deal

Devin White got his deal.

The Buccaneers have agreed to terms on a rookie contract with the former LSU linebacker and fifth overall pick of this year’s draft, the team announced.

White shared his excitement after several months of negotiation on Twitter.

White was one of five remaining unsigned first-round picks, including Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams, Daniel Jones and Brian Burns, before the deal was finalized. His contract will span four years and include a team option for a fifth.

White, 20, led the Tigers in tackles (123), tackles for loss (12) and forced fumbles (3) in 2018 while adding three sacks and two fumble recoveries. He was also named LSU’s MVP for the second-straight season.

The Bucs are scheduled to report to training camp July 25.
