Jason Licht Loves His “Twin Towers”

Joe’s live at One Buc Palace

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.

    Twin Towers draws political correctness people? Really? Ugh I hope not, what else are we supposed to call them? It’s a perfect nickname for them.

  3. Max Says:

    If you guys watched Lovie answer questions he mentioned “I love Mike Glennon, Mike Glennon is our quarterback of the future” does this mean anything?

  4. Mumbles Says:

    Lovie called Glennon his QB of the future. Lovie talks out of both sides of his mouth. The Rams got Donald! They are going to kick our butt!

  5. Bill T Says:

    Glennonmob may be ruling the roost after all. Bottom line, Manziel was a smokescreen not only for the Bucs, but nearly every top 10 pick

  6. Mike Glennon Mob Says:

    Rams got a great defense

    Is this an ironic Bucs fan blog or an actual fan blog?

    This is a disappointing. We had a good productive #2 wide receiver that we drafted in the 4th and traded for a 6th. So all we got was a replacement that hasnt proven himself in the NFL. How is that improving the team? At best we are staying in place. We could have gotten a starting WR in the 2nd round. Hope Mike is better than Clayton.

    and they both run about as fast as a tower, shoot a power walker can ankle tackle these guys…. ARGH!

  11. Ryan Says:

    It will be a quite a duo with Evans and Jackson lining up on opposite sides of the field. This is just the 1st pick Guard,LB and QB can come later in the draft but Evans is a impact player who will help the Bucs offense immediately.

  12. Brandon Says:

    Donald makes Rams very scary on D.

    Not really happy with Evans. He’s a slower version of a young Vincent Jackson… we already have that slower version, his name is Vincent Jackson. We should’ve traded back a few picks if we wanted him.

  13. Mumbles Says:

    Rams game not going to be a good day for the Derrick Brooks jersey retirement!

  14. Shawnbucfan Says:

    Beeker gets love . Go get Em Beeker

  15. Jason A Says:

    BREAKING NEWS: Joe jumps off the skyway cuz his boy Johnny wasn’t picked. Sorry joe had to

  16. Patrick McV Says:

    I said Murray in the 3rd . look out watch out .

  17. kevin Says:

    How can anyone bitch about Evans. He saved manziels ass time again. Weve got two monster pass catchers on the outside. How can you not be happy. Evans is going to change everything paired with Jackson. Im excited. Thank you bucs

  18. Patrick McV Says:

    And your right I don’t like that reference to the twin towers .

  19. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Skyscraper & the Twin Towers?

    That’s catchy.

  20. stratobuc Says:

    I love this pick. Great job, front office! Thank God it wasn’t that other kid from A&M.

  21. WINdyCityBuc Says:

    Liking: Joel Bitonio or Dee Ford in Round 2 (pending availability).

  22. John Says:

    Great pick. Don’t forget we have two really good TE’s and some good running backs. Plus coaches that can coach. We can compete and win now.

  23. Bill T Says:

    Love the pick. Really wanted Watkins but had no firepower to move up. If u watched Evans, he is a bad ass who doesn’t back down. And the comparison to VJax? You’ll see how much faster Evans is

  24. Greg Says:

    Maybe we’ll trade Glennon and our 2nd to Arizona for their pick to get Manziel.

  25. Sweets Willie Says:

    Tedford will have a 4.3 package, Demps, Murphy, Owusu and also a basketball team package VJax, Evans, Wright, Streeter, Maneri. We can attack in different ways.

  26. distraughtfan Says:

    Another 1st rd pick wasted. What can you expect with the Bucs. I predict a new coach and GM in three years. A top ten pick should be a dominant player not a good safe player. If he is a VJackson clone then all we have is another 15th to 20th best wideout. Manziel would at the very least give us no blackouts. We are a team with no star power and average talent at best. I was just as let down with our coaching choice and you can see why…
