Buccaneers sign draft picks Vita Vea, Carlton Davis

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed first-round draft pick Vita Vea and second-round selection Carlton Davis to four-year contracts.

The deals were announced Thursday. They leave Tampa Bay with one unsigned draft pick, second-round running back Ronald Jones.

Vea, a 347-pound defensive tackle out of Washington, was the 12th pick in last month's draft. Davis, a cornerback from Auburn, was the last of three players the Bucs selected in the second round - No. 63 overall.

Both players are expected to compete for starting jobs as rookies.
