Joe’s got video

Bucs fans jumped with glee this spring when, in his first practice as a Bucs player, rookie wide receiver “Godzilla” Evans went all Michael Jordan, skying high and grabbing a pass with one hand as if he was picking an apple off of a tree.

It was a sensational catch. Extraordinary. But Chris Owusu one-upped Evans today.

Evans made his catch this spring in underwear football. Owusu did so in padded practice where the defense was laying the wood to people.

On the play in question, Owusu skied over Mike Jenkins to reach up and grab the ball with one hand. Below is the Bucs’ Vine video of Owuso going Cris Carter on the defense.

    So cool. I want to see this the first two weeks against the stinking Panthers and the Rams. Tiquan, THIS could have been YOU! (not really, but…)

    Always have held out hope for Owusu and still am, hoping he can make the transition from Mr. Pre-season to Mr. Regular season.

    Owusu had a real good camp and preseason last year, though it didn’t carry into the season. I hope this year is different.

    Last year when Wright started as a TE, he dropped two passes in the end zone, which made me question his hands. However, Wright has excellent hands as we know now, which means those early drops were likely just nerves. I am hopeful Owusu’s problem last year was just nerves too, and he will pull out of it from the start of Preseason and on into this year. There is no question that he is a gifted athlete with great speed.

    Owuso’s problem is staying healthy, I’d love to see him break out this season and stay off of IR.

  6. Stanglassman Says:

    To be more specific his problem is concussions. I think the hard hits he has taken is what is leading to his drops and nerves. I wish him the best but I am a bit concerned about his health in the future.

    Owlykat , I thought the same thing last year, Wright had a couple perfectly thrown balls to him in the endzone (last year) and he looked like he converted from DT rather than WR, but he did pick it up and looked as good as a rookie can with over 500 yards receiving (that’s like 1000yds for a WR). With him and Jenkins on the field, it’s pretty much pick your poison this season!

    He would have seen a lot more playing time if he was doing that in games instead of just in practice
