Bucs Ink Seventh-Round Pick Quaccia To 3-Year Deal

July 26 – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed seventh-round draft pick center Zack Quaccia to a three-year deal on Friday. The Bucs used its fourth pick of the seventh round and final 2002 NFL Draft selection on Quaccia, who was a three-year starter at Stanford.

Tampa Bay signed rookie center Zack Quaccia, who the team selected in the seventh round of April's draft, to a three-year contract on Friday. The Bucs used its fourth pick of the seventh round and final pick of the 2002 NFL Draft on Quaccia, who has the ability to play both center and guard.

Quaccia (6-4, 309) was a three-year starter at Stanford, and possesses a typical center's frame. Last season, he was a All-Pac 10 Conference second-team selection. He also recorded 69 knockdown blocks while starting every game at center for the Cardinals. Quaccia was part of a Nebraska offensive line last season that allowed just 23 quarterback sacks and helped the offense average 451.5 yards per game.

The Bucs have seven of its eight 2002 draft picks under contract. Rookie TE Tracey Wistrom remains unsigned, but Tampa Bay expects to sign him before they report to training camp on July 28.
