TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Second-round draft choice Johnthan Banks has agreed to a four-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leaving the team with one unsigned rookie.
Banks was the Bucs' top selection in the draft out of Mississippi State - No. 43 overall. He will compete for playing time in a revamped secondary bolstered by the addition of three-time All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. Revis was obtained in a trade that sent Tampa Bay's first-round selection - No. 13 overall - to the New York Jets.
Third-round quarterback Mike Glennon is Tampa Bay's only unsigned draft pick.
Banks won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 2012. He finished his college career with 16 interceptions, including three he returned for touchdowns.
