Details of player contracts are not made available to the public, but a source tells Sports Talk Florida that Banks’ deal is worth $4,726,321 and includes a signing bonus of $1,817,324.

Banks will earn a base salary of $405,000 in 2013, which is standard for NFL rookies. In 2014, that figure jumps to $619,833. In 2015, he’ll make $834,666 and in 2016, $849,498.

A second-round pick, Banks’ money is fully guaranteed for both 2013 and 2014. He is expected to eventually move into a starting role opposite cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Banks is the fifth draft pick to sign with the team. Mike Glennon, a third-round selection, remains Tampa Bay’s only un-signed player.

See how Banks’ deal compares to contracts for the Bucs’ other signed draft picks [2].
