Dream About To Happen For Mike EvansJuly 25th, 2014
The man Bucs general manager Jason Licht tabbed “Godzilla” is ready to rock and roll across NFL fields as his namesake did Tokyo. Bucs wide receiver and seventh-overall draft pick Mike Evans is ready.
The first round draft pick held court, briefly, with the Tampa Bay pen and mic club as he arrived at One Buc Palace for his first NFL training camp. Evans noted a few things that opened Joe’s eyes.
Evans has been in south Florida much of this summer working out with Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who knows Bucs coach Lovie Smith well. Many have compared the new set of Bucs receivers to the Bears’ skyscrapers, Alshon Jeffrey and Marshall.
When Evans wasn’t working out with Marshall, he was at an undisclosed Tampa location catching pass after pass from Bucs quarterback Josh McCown.
