Mike Evans has the potential to be a top ten, even top five receiver in this league. With an increase in receptions and yards last year compared to his break out rookie season, you’d think his 2015 was a huge success.
He scored only three touchdowns and had a massive problem holding on to the football, especially on passes there was no excuse for dropping other than a sheer lack of concentration. Evans left easily 500 yards and at least five touchdowns on the field last season and that can not be replicated this season. If the Bucs are going to win, and win consistently, Evans has to be a dominant receiver.
Evans has been working on his chemistry and deep passes with quarterback Jameis Winston in the offseason, but Evans also needs to work on his attitude. He can’t be crying to officials over and over and over. It’s put a target on his back and he isn’t going to be getting the calls that he wants, and often times deserves, because he’s always looking for a bailout. Instead, he gets nabbed for offensive interference, putting his team in tough situations.
