Mike Evans, Buccaneers Reportedly Agree to 5-Year, $82.5M Blockbuster Contract

Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Evans has agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million deal with the Buccaneers, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Under the contract, negotiated by agent Deryk Gilmore, Evans receives $55 million in injury guarantees (the previous high was $48.7 million by Johnson); Evans has $38.3 million fully guaranteed over the next two years alone.

The deal makes Evans the NFL's second highest-paid wide receiver, behind Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who averages $17 million per season. In four seasons, Evans has totaled 309 catches, 4,579 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Evans, 24, has been a force in Tampa Bay's offense since arriving as a first-round pick in 2014. His rookie deal paid him $14.631 million over the previous four years, and the Bucs picked up his fifth-year option that pays a base salary this year of $13.258 million. The Buccaneers exercised that option before the deadline previous year, of course, but had a new contract not been signed Evans would have been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next March. I'm going to continue to strive for greatness on the field as well as in my community.

He has passed for almost 27,000 yards with 173 touchdowns and 98 interceptions during his career. Evans is also a master at moving the chains; he has produced a first down on 79.3% of his career catches, the best mark in the National Football League in that span. Evans also needs just three more touchdown receptions to take over the franchise's career record in that category, surpassing Jimmie Giles (34).
