Report: Bucs and Mike Evans in Talks for Another Contract Restructure


Three time Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans is in discussions with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a third contract restructure. As reported by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Evans’ restructure will allow the team to free up a little more cap space for the 2021 season.

Evans is set to have a cap hit of $16,637,500 this season. His cap number will increase about 2 million over the next two seasons before his contract ends in 2024. As Greg Auman of the Athletic has pointed out, Evans could easily play out the rest of his contract with the Buccaneers avoiding any dead money at the end.

As far as being a team player goes, there’s no better example than Evans. His consistency on the field with his NFL record-setting seven straight seasons with 1,000 yards makes him arguably one of the best receivers to come out of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Buccaneers will attempt to go for two in 2021as they’ve brought back all 22 starters from Super Bowl LV. They have become the first team to do so since 1979. With a full season with Tom Brady under their belts, the Bucs looked primed to accomplish their goal.
