Gage has been in Atlanta since 2018 and is coming off back-to-back 750+ yard seasons. He also had four touchdowns in each of those seasons.
The receiver tweeted a gif of his apparent approval of the move:

A reporter at the ABC station in Atlanta, citing an NFL league source, said the deal would be for 3 years at $30 million with $20 million guaranteed.

Last year Gage also logged a 130-yard performance in a 30-17 losing effort.
Gage fits in nicely behind Bucs' star receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Tampa Bay is also still working to resign TE Rob Gronkowski.
