Mike Evans agrees to two-year deal with Tampa Bay

Mike Evans has agreed to a two-year, $52 million deal to stay with Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Evans has spent his entire career with Tampa, and it looks more and more likely he will finish it there. The speculation was he would enter free agency and test the market, but he is staying put with the team that drafted him. He’ll be the unquestioned top wide receiver for next season for whomever the Bucs bring in at QB, whether Baker Mayfield or a new face in 2024.

Mike Evans expected to hit free agency

Mike Evans, who is set to become a free agent at the start of the new league year, is expected to test the open market, though that does not mean he is eliminating a return to Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

A continued stay with the Buccaneers feels like the most likely outcome for Evans' offseason, but it's possible he could be exploring his options to see if there is a situation that appeals to him. With a lot of good teams being WR-needy this offseason, Evans should have a strong market, but after spending a decade in Tampa, Fla., both sides might stick together a little longer.

Mike Evans reportedly working towards deal with the Buccaneers

The Buccaneers are reportedly actively working towards re-signing wide receiver Mike Evans.

Fantasy Impact

Laine added that the Bucs are willing to do a deal even if it puts a strain on their finances to do so. "We're going to do whatever we can to make sure that he's a Buc," general manager Jason Licht said. The Bucs are also working on bringing back Baker Mayfield as well.

Mike Evans, Buccaneers far apart on contract extension

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and WR Mike Evans reportedly still “remain far apart” on contract talks, with Evans “trending toward” becoming a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

The Buccaneers will take on about an additional $7.4 million in dead cap in 2024 via void years this season from Evans’ previous deal by not working out an extension to reallocate the money before the Monday, Feb. 19 deadline. With the new league year approaching, the Buccaneers feel the pressure to get a deal done with Evans before he becomes a free agent, especially with the team likely preferring to use their franchise tag elsewhere, like with safety Antoine Winfield Jr.

Mike Evans quiet in Week 18 win

Mike Evans caught 3-of-8 targets for 22 yards in Tampa Bay’s 9-0 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Evans was held in check for most of the game, recording just one reception after the team’s opening drive. The veteran finishes the season with another 1,000 yard campaign. Evans will likely remain a top fantasy option in 2024
