Sources: Bucs extend OT Smith with $31.8M deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and and offensive tackle Donovan Smith have reached agreement on a two-year, $31.8 million contract extension through 2023 that now includes $30 million guaranteed over the next two seasons, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

By doing so, the Bucs created more room under the salary cap for this season in addition to maintaining continuity on the offensive line to protect quarterback Tom Brady.
