Evans/Bucs restructure contract

The Buccaneers have begun to create more cap space by converting Mike Evans base salary into a signing bonus. As reported by ESPN's Field Yates, the Bucs are one of few teams creating cap space via a veteran on the roster. Once again, Mike Evans is proving to be dedicated to the team by restructuring his contract.

This move will free up $9.5M in cap space as the team begins to build the final roster. As reported, the Bucs have reduced Evans' 2020 cap charge to $8,387.500 down from $17.95M, converting $12.75M into a guaranteed bonus.

With the deadline for roster cuts just under 3 hours, it'll be interesting to see if the Bucs will make any more moves with the remaining cap space. The Bucs aren't expected to name anything final until after the deadline. (Note: Beginning Sunday, the team can start signing players to the practice squad while continuing to pay players that are recovering on injured reserve.)

Releases as of 9/5 @ 1pm:

DT Kyle Love, TE Tanner Hudson, K Matt Gay, RB Dare Ogunbowale, RB Raymond Calais, WR's Cyril Grayson, John Hurst, Bryant Mitchell, Josh Pearson, Spencer Schnell, S D'Cota Dixon, S Javon Hagan, QB Reid Sinnett, TE Cody McElroy, G's Nick Leverett and Zach Bailey, DL Benning Potoa'e, CB's Mazzi Wilkins and Herb Miller, LB's Noah Dawkins and Chapelle Russell.
