Bucs sign seventh-round pick Grimm to 4-year deal
TAMPA - The Bucs reduced their list of unsigned 2010 draftees to one Thursday when they agreed to terms on a four-year contract with seventh-round pick Cody Grimm, according to Grimm's agent, Eric Metz. Grimm's signing leaves only first-round draft pick Gerald McCoy unsigned, but the chances of McCoy signing before today's training camp reporting deadline were starting to look slim Thursday afternoon. Though Bucs general manager Mark Dominik has remained in daily contact with McCoy's agent, the defensive tackle's desire is to wait until first overall pick Sam Bradford signs with the Rams before agreeing to terms. Grimm, the son of Arizona Cardinals assistant coach Russ Grimm, played linebacker and safety at Virginia Tech and is expected to serve the Bucs primarily on special teams during his rookie season.
