“The people I’m talking to believe that he will play in 2022, but he has not made a firm decision... So the Bucs continue to wait patiently. I continue to hear that the Bucs are optimistic, that he will sign before or around training camp. But they’re giving him his space right now. Only a few people really truly know what he is going to do. He hasn’t even made a decision yet. Recently he’s played at about $8-9 million per year.

And the Bucs know he’s stayed in shape so they’re not really worried about an extended absence right now at all.”
