Mike Evans Unlikely To Get Franchise Tag

Sunday, February 18, 6:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans appears to be headed towards free agency this offseason. The original expectation was that the Bucs would place the franchise tag on Evans to prevent him from going into free agency. Due to his 2023 cap number, Evans is projected to make $28.4 million instead of $21.6 million, assuming the Bucs place the franchise tag on him. That said, it seems increasingly unlikely that the Bucs will place the tag on Evans this offseason. Possibly, the two sides will agree on an extension this offseason. Otherwise, we could see the veteran wideout in a different uniform next season.
