Buccaneers won’t sign star wide receiver Mike Evans to contract extension

It appears the writing might be on the wall for star wide receiver Mike Evans that he’s likely playing in his last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Evans and his representation gave the Buccaneers until today to get a contract extension done, extending his time with the team beyond this season. Unfortunately, the team chose not to go that route, and Evans will have to play out the last year of his contract without an extension.

According to Jenna Laine of ESPN, the Buccaneers didn’t even extend an offer to Evans even after he gave a deadline for a deal to get done, which is a telling sign.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not be signing Mike Evans to a contract extension despite the four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver’s Saturday deadline, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

No deal was offered in the days since Evans and his agent, Deryk Gilmore, went public with their demands, sources told ESPN.

In all nine seasons that he’s played for the Buccaneers, Evans has eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark and has been arguably one of the most consistent wideouts in the NFL.

Evans has even been consistent in the touchdown department, as he caught 12 or more touchdowns four times during his nine seasons in Tampa Bay.

Even though Evans isn’t getting any younger at 30 years old, his consistency speaks for itself, meaning there could be teams lining up to sign him next year and possibly some trade offers coming the Buccaneers’ way during the upcoming 2023 campaign.
