The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a monstrous splash in free agency this offseason as everyone knows. Tom Brady has made the switch from the New England Patriots to the Buccaneers. That has changed the entire landscape of the NFL.
Mike Evans, who is one of the top wide receivers in the entire league, could not be more excited about his new quarterback. The Buccaneers are going to be able to have an even more dangerous offense with fewer turnovers.
The Tampa Bay Times shared a quote from Evans, who took some time to speak out about having the opportunity to play with Brady for the Buccaneers.
“It’s surreal,” Evans said. “He’s about to be my quarterback, man. I know you don’t know football like that, but I’ve played six years in the NFL, and I haven’t been to the playoffs yet. Tom Brady has won six Super Bowls.”
Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich are going to have a much easier job this year than they did in 2019. Brady is just a bit of an upgrade over Jameis Winston. Along with that, both Evans and Chris Godwin are going to have much easier jobs.
Last season with the Buccaneers, Evans caught 67 passes for 1,157 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged an impressive 17.3 yards per reception. Tampa Bay may not have as high-powered of an offense, but they should have a much more efficient offense.
Tom Brady and Mike Evans are going to form one of the league’s top quarterback-wide receiver duos. It will be fun to watch and Evans should be excited.
