Penn State product Chris Godwin, expected to be one of the top free agent wide receivers on the market this offseason, instead will be back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, as the team plans to put the franchise tag on him. That’s according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The franchise tag is projected to be $16.4 million for wide receivers.

Godwin helped lead the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl championship this past season. He caught 65 passes for 840 yards and seven TDs in 12 games. He added 16 receptions for 232 yards and one score in the playoffs.

In the Buccaneers’ 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, Godwin caught two passes for 9 yards.
