Mike Evans has emerged as one of the best receivers in the NFL. He has been an asset to the Buccaneers offense and that continued this past Sunday. Evans played a big role in the win over the Seahawks, not just for his two TD catches that lead to our only two scores of the game, but also for his eight catches for 104 yards. Evans again surpassed the 1,000-yard mark, as he has done so each year he’s been in the league, making him the fourth player in NFL history to open his career with three consecutive, 1,000-yard seasons.
He joins a pretty elite group of wide receivers lead by Randy Moss and followed by A.J. Green and John Jefferson. I can still remember many of the gripes, from last year, was, over the fact that we could have had Odell Beckham Jr instead of Mike Evans, please note that OBJ is not on that list.
Jameis Winston is more than happy with Evans and let it be known that he is not surprised, at all, that Richard Sherman had a difficult time covering number 13. Winston said that Evans is elite and that he is a superstar. You can tell that all the hard work Jameis and Evans put in during the off-season is paying off. There is no reason why this duo will not have a great NFL future together.
