Buccaneers signed fifth-round LB Najee Goode to a four-year contract.

Goode worked at all three linebacker positions during Bucs rookie minicamp, and could eventually emerge as a starter on the inside at 6-foot, 244. For now, Goode should be eyeing a top backup role while focusing on special teams.

Bucs selected West Virginia ILB Najee Goode with the No. 140 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Goode was actually a walk-on at West Virginia, but ended up leading the team in tackles in 2011. At 6'0/244, he'll try to latch on as a run-stuffer in Tampa. He's drawn some light comparisons to Redskins tackle machine London Fletcher.
