The beginning of the 2023 NFL campaign is just around the corner, with Mike Evans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers opening the year with contract issues. Mike Evans’ agent has set a deadline for negotiating a new contract for the Buccaneers star receiver. It just may lead him to be traded.
Despite his best efforts, Evans has not received an offer from the Buccaneers, according to his agent, which means that the four-time Pro Bowl wideout will be in line to test free agency if he and the Buccaneers don’t figure out something over the next week.
Among the teams that could want him is a team from his own state: The Dallas Cowboys.
The NFC East team is being linked to a potential blockbuster trade.
Getting Evans would mean adding him to a group that already includes Lamb, Books, and Michael Gallup. This would likely be the formula to get the team much deeper in the playoffs.
Evans, who recently turned 30, is the franchise’s all-time career leader with 683 catches for 10,425 yards and 81 touchdowns.
Evans wants to continue playing for a team that pursuing championships as he already has one after Tom Brady came and delivered one in his first season with the franchise. Those days might be long gone for some time as the franchise transitions from Brady to Baker Mayfield and company.
Evans wants a contract akin to Los Angeles Rams star wideout Cooper Kupp, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. He will become a free agent in March 2024 if the Bucs don’t sign him to a new deal before then.
