Tampa Bay converted $2 million of Evans’ base salary into a signing bonus, creating $1.6 million in cap space.
This is the third time the Buccaneers have reworked Evans’ deal this year.
Evans, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $14.631 million and set to make a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season when he agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million extension that includes $55 million guaranteed last year.
Evans stands to make base salaries of $20 million (2019), $16.75 million (2020), $12.25 million (2021), $14 million (2022) and $13 million (2023) over the remainder of the agreement.
In 2018, Evans appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and caught 86 passes for 1,524 yards receiving and eight touchdowns.
