Chris Godwin was given the franchise tag by the Buccaneers after not being able to come to terms on a long term deal before the deadline. Well it didn’t take long for him to sign it. Per Adam Schefter, Godwin has indeed signed his tag today.
Bucs’ WR Chris Godwin signed his $15.9 million franchise tender, locking it in for 2021 in case he does not get a long-term deal.

Under the tag, Chris Godwin will make a fully guaranteed $15.983 Million dollars for the 2021 season. Though all hope is not lost. From my understanding the Buccaneers are continuing contract talks and have until July 15 to work out a long term deal. There is still a strong possibility the two sides will come to an agreement sooner rather than later and open up more valuable cap space to continue to bring back key free agents.
The Buccaneers also lost an unsigned free agent today to the Philadelphia Eagles. Safety Andrew Adams has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the team, Brandon Lee Gowton reports.

Adams first signed with the Buccaneers in the 2018 season. After leaving for the Detroit Lions in 2019, Adams was cut after training camp and signed back with the Buccaneers where he has spent the last two seasons. Playing a pivotal role on special teams and as a veteran mentor. Javon Hagan looks to have the inside track at replacing as the fourth safety on the team.
