The fifth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White has been a pivotal defensive anchor of a Bucs team that were Super Bowl LV champions. In his four seasons in the NFL, White has notched himself a 2020 second-team All-Pro nod and a 2021 Pro Bowl bid.

Devin White Salary

Devin White’s four-year rookie contract that paid out just over $29 million over four years ended after the 2022 season. The Buccaneers picked up the fifth-year option that will pay him $11.7 million, fully guaranteed in 2023.

Devin White Cap Hit

Devin White’s cap hit will equal the $11.7 million paid out by his fifth-year option.

Devin White Potential Extension

White posted some cryptic social media things that raised questions about a potential trade out of Tampa Bay. Reports quickly dispelled that notion, with a contract extension seemingly likely.

If a contract extension is not agreed upon before 2024 free agency, White could be franchise tagged.

With recent off-ball linebackers like Roquan Smith earning $20 million annually and now Tremaine Edmunds signing for $18 million annually, Devin White’s price is up. He’ll deservedly seek a contract in that range.
