“New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been praised for his hands, but Mike Evans says there’s another aspect of Beckham’s skill set that has been overlooked.” “He’s a tough player,” Evans, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ leading receiver, said Thursday. “I think he’s one of the best in the game. Being a smaller receiver, he’s very quick. He has some of the best hands. And he’s tough — people don’t give him credit for his toughness.” – Reported by Andrew Astleford
