Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has reportedly been in discussions with the organization on a possible long-term deal. Despite that, it sounds like Evans wants to see what he is worth on the open market. Evans could always return to Tampa Bay, but he wants to test free agency and see what teams are interested in his services. Last season, Evans finished with 79 receptions for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in his first 10 seasons in the league. The 31-year-old still has plenty left in the tank and should land himself a massive deal this offseason.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett could be a salary cap casualty this offseason. He's 31 years old and will carry a $27.8 million cap hit while coming off a sub-1,000-yard season in 2023. Lockett has been in his nine years in Seattle, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said it might be a tough dynamic to overcome in 2024. Lockett had 79 receptions on 122 targets for 894 yards and five touchdowns in 17 starts in 2023, but his yardage total was his lowest since his third year in the league in 2017. His contract also has an out clause in it for the 2024 season, so if it looks like he may not be back, he could exercise it and test the free-agent market. If Lockett were to leave, it would be great news for second-year wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as he would become the No. 2 behind DK Metcalf.
