No Extension Talks Between Buccaneers & Mike Evans, Likely To Play Out 5th-Year Option

Last year as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were signing big-name free agents like wide receiver DeSean Jackson, defensive tackle Chris Baker and safety J.J. Wilcox, Bucs general manager Jason Licht still operated with the awareness that a few of their young guys were going to be hitting their own big contracts soon.

One of those players was wide receiver Mike Evans.

Evans has been a focal point of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive identity since the team drafted him No. 7 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. Since day one, Evans has ruled the aerial attack of those who have tried to stop him. Hes recorded over 1,000 yards receiving in each of his first four seasons, and is already No. 3 all-time in the franchises record book for most receiving yards by a Buccaneer " with health on his side, hell be the franchises best receiver of all-time as he closes out his rookie deal.

With accolades like that, Evans is sure to cash out in a big way. But, as the time draws near, the question centers on when that pay day will happen. Evans agent, Deryk Gilmore of Day 1 Sports & Entertainment, told PewterReport.com that he and his client are in no rush. Last year, the Bucs picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract and he is set to play the 2018 season making $13.2 million.
