Linebacker Joe Tryon signed his rookie contract with the Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Times reported Tuesday.

Tryon, who was selected with the 32nd overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, inked a four-year deal worth $11.17 million, per the report. He received a signing bonus of approximately $5.48 million from the Buccaneers, who hold a fifth-year option on his contract.

Tryon, 22, opted out of the 2020 college football season at Washington after recording eight sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss in the previous campaign.

He is coming off an arthroscopic procedure on his knee shortly after the draft, however he was available for the Buccaneers’ mandatory minicamp earlier this month.
