Sleepless general manager Mark Dominik announced that the Bucs have signed left tackle Donald Penn and reached an agreement with first-round pick Gerald McCoy.
Penn, who arrived in Tampa on the red-eye from Los Angeles Saturday morning, signed a 6-year deal believed to be worth $43-million. He joined his teammates at practice Saturday 15 minutes after the announcement.
McCoy agreed to a 5-year deal and should be at the aftenoon practice.
"We just finalized Donald Penn's contract, we're very excited about that,'' Dominik said. "On top of that, we agreed to terms with Gerald McCoy. We're finishing up some language and paperwork. We've got a few things left. I don't know if he's going to be able to make it out to practice this morning. We're excited about having him for the afternoon practice. That should work out. So in that way, it's a really good day, it's a great day for the Bucs in terms of securing two players to long-term deals that can be really important to the organization."
