Bucs lock up Mike Evans through 2023.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers and wide receiver Mike Evans have reportedly reached a deal on an extension. ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news via Twitter.

The reported deal will average under $17-million per season. His contract extension places him just under Pittsburgh Wide Receiver Antonio Brown, per Over The Cap.

Evans, 24, posted his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season in 2017. The 2014 seventh overall pick holds the franchise record for most touchdowns by a rookie (12 in 2014) and most receiving yards per game in his career with just over 75 yards.

Evans took to Instagram to post a message about his extension.
