Mike Evans Follows Through With Randy Moss

July 21st, 2015


The Buccaneers’ No. 1 receiver, 21-year-old star Mike Evans, hasn’t taken his foot off the gas since working out with Randy Moss this spring and joining America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, for a summer chemistry session in Tallahassee.

Evans told USA Today that he would reconvene for lessons with Moss after July 4. And it has happened.

Terrelle Pryor, who joined the festivities, shot out a photo via Instagram. (Warning, it’s five smiling shirtless dudes, with Moss next to Evans.)

Joe recalls Josh McCown saying repeatedly that Evans’ commitment to improving during his first NFL offseason likely would shape and define his NFL career.

McCown was — and is — a miserable quarterback, but he was around many superstar receivers through his long career. McCown spoke from experience.

Yes, it seems the Bucs have a gem in Evans. And Joe can’t wait for Evans to prove that his struggles through the final six games of last season were because of miserable quarterback play and inept playcalling. Evans had just one game in that stretch with more than 50 yards receiving.

    Jameis meet your new favorite target….

    It’s hard to stand still in life. Generally your are either moving forward or backwards…getting better or getting worse.

    Glad to see that ME gets this and has decided to get better.

    I can’t help but wonder if his former QB Johnny Football’s NFL experience has made Evans decide to take things seriously.

  3. The Real Malloy Says:

    in regards to Johnny, guess we know who made who with him and Evans…

  4. Buccfan37 Says:

    Evans has made himself a target, on offense with Koetter coaching, Winston throwing and by defensive backs with coaching determined to limit his effectiveness. I expect Evans to do well in these matchups.

    After looking at that picture, I think I need to head to the gym.

  6. Ray Rice Says:

    Savage Mike! Randy looks like he can still play.

  7. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    @Ray Rice

    Agree. And I suspect Moss could still play but not at his former level.

    Always a question for a great athlete. Once you’ve been the straw that stirs the drink are you willing to become 2nd or 3rd banana just to prolong your career.

  8. Ray Rice Says:


    Great way to put it. A great player of that caliber definitely wasn’t going to take a back seat to anyone. Good to see Savage Mike putting in the hard work, and learning from The Great Moss.

    I really like coming to this site to get bucs updates you can’t get anywhere usually. However the constant pop ads is making it unbearable.

  10. Yungry Says:

    The red zone threats will be sick this year. Evans and Vincent on the outside with ASJ and Tim Wright inside the 20! The Dunkaneers will help out JW a lot…

  11. SOEbuc Says:

    I really hate to say this, but Mike looks the most out of shape of those guys. He did not look like that in the Tallahassee photos. Maybe its just the lighting. Thats what i always say when i look fat in a photo. But luckily we know he has the best hands of the group and is a true man-beast. IT’S GOZILLA!!!

    St pete bucs fan, as ABR the band puts it very clearly: You will never fly fast enough to make time stand still, so stop, listen and learn. (Unfortunately it is very true)

    Duke about to erupt in 2015.

  14. Harry Says:

    How does one not get stoked from reading this. Love hard work and dedication!

  15. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    This is why Mike Evans will not be Mike Clayton. Work ethic and love for the game! Winston and Evans will get along just fine!!!

  16. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Nole/Buc, how can you like FSU and root for Duke?!?! Lol!

  17. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Matt, very true. One would have to travel at the speed of light to not move through time. That is very impossible. It would take an infinite amount of energy to do so.

  18. BUCutalkinbout Says:

    Love this site, I’m a junkie when it comes to our beloved Bucs. I only ride with them… NO SECOND TEAM for me!
    YO JOE!
    GO BUCS!!!

  19. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I was speaking metaphorically not as a professor of physics. LOL

    Point taken.

  20. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    StPete, lol!!!

  21. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    ☺I hear you Buccane…

  22. Joey Joe Joe Jr. Says:

    Real classy taking a shot at McCown.

  23. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    Joey Joe Joe Jr.

    You obviously don’t read many of Joe’s articles. It’s common for Joe to take shots at McCown. Quite frankly, he deserves those shots for his play. It was atrocious.

  24. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Anyone remember what Randy Moss was famous for besides catching passes?


    Just the influence we need for Evans.

  25. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    By the way…Evans is the white guy in that photo, right? lol.

  26. Owlykat Says:

    JW was smart to bring Evans to Tallahassee to develop chemistry with him because Evans is his number one receiver. He also told you who is the number two receiver of the future because he brought him too. JW is learning fast and I also love that he will also be training with the latest electronic training device developed at Stanford and raised their QB markedly by an almost 20 per cent of his completion percentage which also will speed up JW’s recognition of defenses in the NFL and speed up his decision making. If our OL is just average we are going to have a much better team in time than any of the experts believe.
