National Football League free agents: Why Ryan Fitzpatrick can't return to Jets

The deal confirmed Friday includes $55 million guaranteed and also makes Evans the highest-paid player with the Buccaneers with an average annual salary of $16.5 million.

Evans was a second-team All-Pro in 2016, and has twice reached 12 receiving touchdowns in a season.

The contract is for one year, but the amount of money is not known at this time. The Buccaneers exercised that option before the deadline a year ago, of course, but had a new contract not been signed Evans would have been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next March.

They say the best National Football League franchises become successful by drafting well and re-signing their own.




2017 was Fitzpatrick's first season in Tampa Bay.

On the Buccaneers' career receiving yardage chart, Evans has already risen to third, behind only Mark Carrier (5,018) and Kevin house (4,928). Fitzpatrick proved to be much more than a steadying force, though, stepping in for Winston in four games and winning two of his three starts. The team may have similar tasks in the years to come with the likes of Jameis Winston, Ali Marpet, Donovan Smith, Kwon Alexander and others.

This is the first of many steps in the re-signing of recent drat picks the Buccaneers will need to do in the coming months.

The 35-year-old Fitzpatrick completed 96 of 163 passes for 1,103 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions last season.
