And then there was one.
To make room for Grimm on the 80-man camp roster, the Buccaneers released rookie safety Dennis Rogan.
Grimm is the second of the Buccaneers' nine draftees to reach contract agreement this week, following Tuesday's signing of wide receiver
The 5-11, 210-pound Grimm was the first of three seventh-round selections made by the Buccaneers in April's draft, and the 210th player taken overall. He is the son of Russ Grimm, the current assistant head coach of the Arizona Cardinals and a four-time Pro Bowler as an offensive lineman with the Washington Redskins.
Grimm played in 54 games and started 15 over four seasons at Virginia Tech, recording 214 tackles, 26.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, nine forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. A former walk-on who rose to team-captain status by his senior year, Grimm tied for the NCAA FBS lead with seven forced fumbles in 2009.
Grimm earned third-team All-America honors from the Associated Press as a senior after starting all 13 of the Hokies' at linebacker and leading the team with 106 tackles. He also earned first-team All-ACC honors and was the Defensive MVP of the Hokies' Chick-fil-A Bowl win over Tennessee. Grimm was also considered a special teams standout in a program known for excelling in that phase of the game.
Rogan signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent on April 26.
