BREAKING: Mike Evans Signs A Contract Extension With Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike Evans is staying in Tampa.

The Buccaneers and Mike Evans have agreed to a two-year, $52 million contract to keep their star receiver in Tampa Bay, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Evans was slated to become a free agent later this month.

Bringing back Evans not only will help the Buccaneers’ offense but also will serve as another catalyst in the recruitment to re-sign free agent quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has said he hopes to continue playing with the standout receiver.


“He’s an unprecedented player. We want him to be a Buc for life,” general manager Jason Licht said last week at the NFL combine.

The Bucs selected Evans seventh overall in the 2014 NFL draft, making him Licht’s first draft selection as general manager. Since then, Evans has become one of the NFL’s marquee receivers, with five Pro Bowl selections (2016, 2018, 2019, 2021, 2023).
