Mike Evans has agreed a two-year, $52million deal to remain at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to The Athletic.

Evans, who could have tested the free agency market next week, instead opted to stay in Tampa after being drafted by the Florida franchise in 2014.

He won the Super Bowl in 2020 and remained a key part of their offense last season, delivering 1,255 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.

His agent Deryk Gilmore told The Athletic: “Mike called me last night and said I want to be a Buc for life.”

Evans would have been a target for many teams on the free agent market with reports the wide receiver was coveted by the Patriots, Giants and Chiefs among others.

Neither Evans, nor the Bucks, have commented on the agreement officially but Evans did post on Instagram with a message that simply read: “Fire them cannons!”
