Selling Out?

September 12th, 2020

Not so close?

Joe isn’t sure is if this is just the sign of the times or evidence of Bucs friends parting ways? Or something much worse.

Bucs superfan Steven Cheah of Barstool Sports posted on Twitter this morning someone by the handle of “727vintage” (someone from Pasco or Pinellas county 727 area code?) is selling on eBay a game-worn Mike Evans jersey.

What’s the big deal about that? Well, the jersey is purported to have been signed by Evans. OK, so? Well, Evans wrote a personal note on it. And that personal note was to Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler and former Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston.

The implication here is that Jameis may be selling the jersey.

If this jersey is authentic, it raises a few questions:

Why would Jameis sell it? And if the seller isn’t Jameis, did the guy get the jersey as a gift from Jameis or even buy it from Jameis?

Is this jersey stolen property?

Is someone within Jameis’ inner circle selling the jersey without his knowledge?

Evans, even after Jameis left and the Bucs signed park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady (hi Paul — thanks for reading!), Evans has said he and Jameis are tight and that they will be friends long after their football days are over.

This all seems very odd to Joe.

    Oh look a healthy Mike Evans. Getting hurt in Brady’s first game before the season even starts. Way to go guy, good job.

    Or…is it a counterfeit?

  3. Bucsfanman Says:

    I seriously question whether people are fans sometimes. What a dumb comment.

  4. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Jay-miss needs to sell a lot more to make up for that loss of 30 million contract!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course the “real” fans knew and told the truth years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Tye Says:

    Maybe like many before him JW has poor money management skills and over extended himself falsely believing he was good enough to get another multi million dollar contract…
    Once he is out of the league in a year or two he may have to sell WAY more than just a jersey!

  6. John Sinclear Says:

    The reality of it is, Jameis needs the money. After all, he’s only making a paltry million bucks this year !!

  7. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Maybe JayMiss left the jersey in the back of Ndogs Prius after one of puppy’s torrid Nuthugger sessions?

    “Still smells like my hero too, just too painful for me to keep any longer”

    Some guy going by the name Ndog has it for sale

  9. Bird Says:

    What those guys said ^


    The guy or gal who commented first about evans is a joke
    Wonder why scared to show their real Poster name.
    Guarantee a jameis nut hugger

    Mike evans is the truth

    Waiting for 7th 1000 yard season which no other receiver in history of nfl has accomplished

  10. Swampbuc Says:

    I am sure this jersey has nothing to do with Mike’s and Jameis’ friendship. Just another internet driven thing to generate clicks and maybe defraud someone of some money.

  11. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Instead of going for the conspiracy theory angle, you failed to mention the most plausible explanation: it’s a fake that someone is trying to make a lot of money on.

  12. Bucsfan951 Says:

    There was another Evans jersey on eBay that had Larry Fitzgerald on it. All of it seems fishy to me.

    Is it just me or does the a and o in Jaboo look different than the a and o in the script?

  13. unbelievable Says:

    Could easily have been stolen.

    But I guess no one around here has heard of Martin Mauricio Ortega.

    Anyhow, that’s pretty cheap. Might bid on it myself lol

  14. Capt. Reality Says:

    All the receivers hated playing with Jameis. Mike got drilled in the back over and over catching comebacks because thats all he could throw.

  15. jmoon Says:

    Its Fake he even says that in a update that it is most likely just game worn .

    *** And you know this “factual information”, how?

  17. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Gofortheface30, Mike Evans will play.

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Capt. Reality, that is total poop. What they hated was Jameis throwing to the other team.
