  • Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms with popular former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Evans had one year remaining on his entry-level contract but is now secured by the Buccaneers throughout his prime, with the former first-round pick emerging as one of the elite playmakers in the National Football League and the prime target for young quarterback Jameis Winston.

His $16.5 million annual salary is certain to up the demands by players like Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins, two free-agent receivers the Bears are expected to pursue.

The deal makes him the NFL's second highest-paid wide receiver after Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown ($17M per year average). He also ranks third in franchise history with 309 career receptions, and his 4,579 career receiving yards are the most by a player in his first four seasons in Buccaneers' history.

The deal can be worth as much as $82.5 million and includes $55 million in guaranteed money.

In Fitzpatrick's first season with the Bucs, he played in six games with three starts, finishing with a 2-1 record.

Jason Licht may not have been involved in any trades over the past few days, but he's been working hard at ensuring that a cornerstone of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was locked up for years to come. The 35-year-old was 96-163 for 1,103 yards and seven touchdowns to three interceptions last year.

Evans had 71 catches for 1,001 yards and five TDs in 2017, when the Bucs finished 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the 10th straight season.
