As he enters his sixth season, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans continues to work his way through statistical categories that not many players have entered in NFL history. Evans is one of only two players in NFL history to have started their career with five consecutive seasons of over 1,000 yards receiving. The other two are Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green & Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss. And if Evans can eclipse over 1,000 yards this season, he & Moss will stand alone as the only NFL players to ever start their careers with six straight 1,000 yard seasons. But as much as those numbers may mean to others, Evans spoke to the media on Wednesday & the conversation was more about the team winning, plus his thoughts about going up against teammate Vernon Hargreaves in practice.
With the team losing two veteran wide receivers this off-season, Evans may need the younger receivers on the team to take some attention away from the All-Pro wide receiver. And even though Evans had eight touchdowns last season, he is hoping that under head coach Bruce Arians' offense, he'll be able to increase his red-zone targets.
