WR Mike Evans eager to help Buccaneers end playoff drought
WR Mike Evans eager to help Buccaneers end playoff drought.
The fourth-year pro is Jameis Winston’s favorite target and has established himself as one of the NFL’s top receivers over the past three seasons.
Evans, who had a career-high 96 receptions for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, said it won’t be that big of an adjustment.
I’ve been a leader since I’ve been here along with `V-Jax’ and then `V-Jax’ got hurt earlier in the season last year,” said Evans, who has topped 1,000 yards receiving in each of his three pro seasons.
”We’ve got a lot of capable guys, and it’s been fun with `D-Jax’ as well.
”He’s had a great offseason,” Monken said, adding that Evans is a ”very smart, very competitive” player who’s continues to improve.
I’m not talking about as people, just on the field – and that’s come so far,” Koetter added.
The goal is to win games.” In addition to signing DeSean Jackson, the Bucs drafted tight end O.J.
”In OTAs it’s hard to tell if there’s a bunch of improvement and things like that, but guys are playing with a lot more swagger and having a lot more fun out there,” Evans said.
This is my third year with him, and so there’s a good feel,” he added.
