Mike Evans is one of the biggest reasons for the Buccaneers’ recent success. Without Evans, Jameis Wisnton isn’t putting up the numbers he is and the Bucs are not on the precipice of a playoff caliber team. The Bucs picked up Evans’ fifth-year option but have yet to give him his long term extension.
In fact, there have been zero talks about it.
That news is courtesy of Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report as he spoke about it on the most recent Pewter Nation Podcast. There may be a few reasons the talks have not taken place yet.
