Unexpected:Dan Campbell Suspended Two players And Sign T…..

Mike Evans is now leaning toward signing with a new team in free agency after failing to come to an agreement with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by the end of the day on Monday. Before the new league year begins on March 13, the Buccaneers may still be able to retain him, but according to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, the two sides “remain far apart”. The “deadline” on Monday has to do with a contract void that now charges Tampa Bay dead money.

In 2023, Evans recorded his tenth consecutive 1,000-yard campaign and equaled the league top with thirteen touchdowns. As he continues to be a successful big receiver in contested catch situations, many teams will be poised to take advantage of him.

The Detroit Lions don’t have many gaps on the offensive end of the ball going into free agency. If Jonah Jackson and/or Graham Glasgow depart, Guard could end up becoming one, but only time will tell. Some may argue that the offense’s potential would increase with a large wide receiver, who would fill a hole that has to be filled in some fashion.

Since the autumn, there has been an allure to the prospect of Mike Evans signing a free agent contract with the Lions. However, it didn’t feel realistic back then, and it doesn’t feel any better today. This offseason, Amon-Ra St. Brown is expected to get a contract deal of $20–$25 million year, albeit the full impact of that compensation increase would not be realized.

Perhaps at age 31, Evans would agree to a one-year contract at a reduced price with a competitor and voluntarily return to the market in March 2025. That’s the only way, and quite unlikely, that he ends up with the Lions. That also presumes that the Lions are more than just a “don’t rule anything out” kind of team, aware that they are unlikely to obtain him given the number of other teams that are considerably more in need of him.
