Don’t Overblow Evans’ Weight-Loss ChallengeJuly 3rd, 2014
Oh, the horror! Mike Evans says he believes he should lose seven pounds in a hurry. And he’s trying real hard to do it. Break out the infamous rubber shirt.
Today, beat writer Greg Auman, of the Tampa Bay Times, shared his recent chat with Evans about the rookie’s excess fat.
Here’s the TampaBay.com link. NFL.com is even calling Evans out of shape.
Joe is as hypersensitive to all things Bucs as anyone, but Joe simply cannot read seriously into Evans talking about his weight. This is almost silly.
In addition to being a lean guy, Evans is 20-years-old and possibly still growing. He’s surely going to add some man weight, plus he was limited, possibly for the first time in his life, with a hamstring injury suffered during an early spring practice with the Buccaneers.
Joe hopes no Bucs fan starts walking around grumbling about Evans’ commitment, and speculating that he’s been partying too hard with his best friend, swan-hugging Johnny Football.
Evans is just fine.
