Bucs sign fifth-round selection Kevin Pamphile

TAMPA — The Bucs announced that they signed offensive tackle Kevin Pamphile, a fifth-round draft pick from Purdue, to a four-year contract on Monday.

Pamphile, who played at Miami Central High, is the third 2014 draft pick to sign with the Bucs, joining guard Kadeem Edwards and receiver Robert Herron. Financial terms were not disclosed, but as the 149th overall pick, Pamphile is slotted to receive a signing bonus of about $200,000.

The team's top three picks — receiver Mike Evans, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Charles Sims — remain unsigned.

Tweeter back: The Dolphins reinstated Don Jones, who was suspended for insensitive posts on Twitter reacting to the nationally televised kiss Michael Sam shared with his boyfriend on draft weekend. Jones, a defensive back, completed sensitivity training and was fined.

Marshall re-signs: The Bears and Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall agreed to a three-year extension through the 2017 season. Marshall tweeted that the extension is worth $30 million and that he's donating $1 million to the "mental health community." In 2011, Marshall disclosed that he had been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound former UCF standout has a history of off-field problems, but the Bears have had no complaints. He signed the deal during an appearance on The View.

League meetings: League owners, meeting in Atlanta, will choose the 2018 Super Bowl today among New Orleans, Indianapolis and Minneapolis.

Browns: The team expects Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon to practice this week as he awaits a possible suspension. Gordon reportedly failed another drug test (for marijuana, ESPN reported) and faces a one-year ban. Gordon led the league in receiving yards last season. … Cleveland released former Bucs fullback Chris Pressley.

Chiefs: Former Vikings and Bears offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb signed.

Giants: They signed Odell Beckham, a wide receiver drafted 12th overall this month.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Yankees game

    The Heater

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
