Mike Evans agrees to five-year, $82.5 million extension with Bucs

Mike Evans agrees to five-year, $82.5 million extension with Bucs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have locked up one of the most critical pieces of their offense by signing wide receiver Mike Evans to a new multiyear deal.

Fitzpatrick, 35, was brought in by Tampa Bay to be the backup to Jameis Winston and to provide some mentorship for the 24-year-old starting quarterback.




In Fitzpatrick's first season with the Bucs, he played in six games with three starts, finishing with a 2-1 record.

Evans now will be behind Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown, who is the highest-paid receiver at $17 million per year, and just above Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who makes $16.2 million annually. He was set to enter the final year of his rookie deal on a fifth-year option worth $13.2 million, which heightened the internal push to something done. The Buccaneers had no desire to let him get away, and Evans was obviously motivated to continue his stellar career in Tampa, as well. The Bucs are his seventh National Football League franchise. Glennon was drafted by the Buccaneers but joined the Chicago Bears in 2017. That's the goal with every draft pick, and keeping Evans in the fold is a major accomplishment. His best statistical year to date came in 2016 when he racked up 96 catches for 1,321 yards and 12 scores to earn his first Pro Bowl nod. In four seasons, Evans has totaled 309 catches, 4,579 yards and 32 touchdowns.
