Mike Evans came into the National Football League back in 2014 and every single year he has been a pro he has recorded at least 1,000 yards receiving. That is big time production and when you really think about how good you have to be to achieve a feat like that you understand that Mike Evans is a flat out superstar. Brandon Marshall a veteran receiver of the New York Giants has amassed eight seasons of 1,000 yards receiving and even Marshall didn’t start his career off with three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. When you consider that Evans is already almost to Marshall’s half way mark, you begin to see just how good Evans has been and he really hit the ground running as a pro. Mike Evans is just 23 years old and he easily has several more seasons ahead of him. That will give Evans all the opportunity in the world to become one of the greatest receivers the game has ever seen and playing with Jameis Winston sure doesn’t hurt. Evans and Winston clearly have a unique cohesion which has allowed them to be extremely prolific. That duo will haunt defensive coordinators around the league for years to come and truthfully the best of Evans and Winston has yet to happen. Evans and Winston are actually both 23 years old and they still are maturing with each rep they take. That means both guys have a tremendous amount of upside and the future is extremely bright if you’re a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. The Bucs won the Super Bowl back in 2003 with an outstanding defense led by Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks. Now Tampa Bay is emerging into a Super Bowl contender again except this time they have an extremely dynamic offense. That’s because of players like Mike Evans who come in and get the job done with their superior athletic ability. Tampa Bay has a number of players like that on their roster right now and it’s a lot of fun to watch this team play.
