Jason Licht Loves His “Twin Towers”May 8th, 2014
Bucs general manager Jason Licht was flashing an ear-to-ear grin at One Buc Palace tonight. The Bucs “got their guy” in wide receiver Mike Evans, Licht told Joe and assembled media.
The Bucs now have two gargantuan No. 1 wide receivers, Vincent Jackson and Evans. Licht dropped a nickname on them, “The Twin Towers.”
(Joe sure hopes the politically correct police don’t crack down on that, though Joe suspects they will.)
Evans is 6-5. 230 pounds. So is Jackson.
Joe asked Licht what stood out about Evans in private workouts the Bucs had with him.
Licht explained that 1-on-1 time with Evans revealed more than what he showed on his Texas A&M tape. Licht said Evans flashed better-than-expected skill getting out of his breaks, in addition to the coveted “mental toughness” the Bucs were seeking.
