Rookie TE Devin Culp Signs First NFL Contract

The Buccaneers now have three of their seven 2024 draft picks under contract after completing a deal with seventh-round TE Devin Culp on Monday


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed tight end Devin Culp, their seventh-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, to his first NFL contract on Monday afternoon. Culp joins fourth-round running back Bucky Irving and sixth-round guard Elijah Klein as members of the team's 2024 draft class to get their deals done; like all players drafted after the first round, Culp agreed to the standard four-year rookie pact.

The Bucs now have four more draft picks who need deals: first-round center Graham Barton, second-round outside linebacker Chris Braswell, third-round safety Tykee Smith and third-round wide receiver Jalen McMillan.

Culp caught 66 passes for 711 yards and four touchdowns during his time at Washington while showing the ability to be an effective run-blocker. He made himself an intriguing draft candidate at the NFL Scouting Combine by running a 4.47-second 40-yard dash, third-fastest among all players who weighed at least 230 pounds.

"I liked his toughness, liked his speed and athletic ability," said Tight Ends Coach Justin Peelle. "The one thing that really showed up is that he fought you on every play. There were times that he was going up against bigger guys but he came out of his shoes and he was trying to fight you. He does a nice job with the ball in his hands, he's got some nice contact balance."
