Bucs' Mike Evans has a deal

June, 12, 2014
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to contract terms with first-round pick Mike Evans, the team announced Thursday afternoon.

Terms of the deal weren't immediately available, but it's not hard to figure out. First-round picks sign four-year deals with the team holding an option for a fifth year.

It's likely Evans got something similar to what Atlanta tackle Jake Matthews got. Matthews was the sixth overall pick and Evans was the seventh. Matthews signed a deal worth $16.5 million (all guaranteed) that included a $10.3 million signing bonus.

Evans is expected to start right away at wide receiver opposite Vincent Jackson.
