TAMPA, Fla. -- Sixth-round draft pick Bruce Gradkowski signed a contract Monday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A three-year starter at Toledo, Gradkowski became the first quarterback in major college football history to complete more than 70 percent of his passes in consecutive seasons, in 2003 and 2004. He finished with a career completion percentage of 68.2, a Division I-A record.

To make room on the roster, fullback Robert Douglas was released.
