ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Fourth-round draft pick William Gholston has signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 6-foot-6, 281-pound defensive end out of Michigan State was the 126th overall selection last month. He had 10 career sacks in college and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection as a sophomore and junior with the Spartans.

The Bucs announced the signing Tuesday.

Gholston is the third draft pick to reach terms. Fifth-rounder Steven Means and sixth-round selection Mike James signed on Monday.
