The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have signed 2013 NFL Draft selection DE William Gholston.

Gholston (6-6, 281) was selected in the fourth round (126th overall) from Michigan State University, where he played in 36 games, recording 142 tackles, 13 passes defensed, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 30 tackles for loss, the 10th-most in Michigan State history. Gholston earned second-team All-Big Ten honors following both his sophomore and junior seasons and was a quarterfinalist for the Lombardi Award (lineman of the year).
