Yates says the Buccaneers converted a portion of Marpet’s $10.625 million base salary into a signing bonus.
Marpet, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers out of Hobart back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3,773,586 contract and set to make a base salary of $874,581 for the 2018 season when he signed a five-year, $55 million extension.
Marpet is set to make base salaries of $10.25 and $10 million over the next two seasons.
In 2020, Marpet has appeared in all six games for the Buccaneers and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 3 offensive tackle out of 75 qualifying players.
