Buccaneers add Russell Gage to receiving group

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing wide receiver Russell Gage, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

What It Means:

Gage will likely compete with Tyler Johnson for the No. 3 receiver job in Tampa Bay. However, depending on Chris Godwin's recovery from a December ACL tear, Gage could have an opportunity to start next season as the Buccaneers' No. 2 wideout. The 26-year-old had over 65 catches and 750-plus yards in each of the last two seasons, with 4 touchdowns in both campaign.

Gage averaged 10.0 FanDuel points per game and 8.2 yards per target last season. Among the 48 wide receivers with at least 80 targets, Gage ranked 29th in Reception Net Expected Points per target.
