Chris Godwin, Buccaneers unlikely to reach long-term deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wide receiver Chris Godwin are not expected to reach a long-term extension by Friday's deadline, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Rapoport states that the Buccaneers still consider Godwin a "core player" and they resume long-term talks next offseason. "clearly value Godwin as a core player" Godwin recorded 75 yards and/or a touchdown in nine of the 12 games he played in last season. He was the only player on the Bucs to average over 10.0 yards per target on at least 20 targets, and Godwin also had the best catch rate (78.3 percent) among teammates with 50-plus targets.

Godwin ranked 14th in Reception Net Expected Points per target last season among 138 players with at least 50 targets. He is currently the WR16 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings and our models project him for 139.0 targets, 94.3 receptions, 1,178.5 yards, and 8.1 touchdowns.
