2012 NFL Draft Results: Former West Virginia Cornerback Keith Tandy Signs With Tampa Bay

The 2012 NFL Draft is in the books, but players are now starting to sign their contracts with their new teams. That includes some former local products, and former West Virginia cornerback Keith Tandy is the latest to ink a deal. He was a sixth round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has put pen to paper on a new deal, according to Aaron Wilson at Scout.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached a four-year agreement in principle with sixth-round cornerback Keith Tandy, according to a league source.

Tandy intercepted three passes last season, plus another one in the Orange Bowl win over Clemson. As a junior, Tandy had 57 tackles, six interceptions and 11 pass deflections and was named All-Big East Conference.

Tandy has good size and speed for a cornerback, which is something that teams like to have in their backups. He has a very good chance of making the roster.
