Mike Evans: “My Body Has More Juice”

July 26th, 2021

The greatest receiver in Buccaneers history had a firm answer to Joe’s question.

Joe asked Mike Evans if he felt differently entering his eighth training camp this year, faster, leaner, anything?”

Evans turns 28 next month and it’s safe to say he is squarely in his prime, considering his age and the lack of serious injuries through his career. For perspective, Julio Jones’ last legendary season came when he was 29 years old.

“I feel like. you know, each year I get better. I improve my route running. My body has more juice,” Evans told Joe. “I’m healthier every year. I just feel lighter. That’s it, a little bit lighter.”

This confidently expressed take from Evans just reinforces that fans should expect a monster season from him and a return to the Pro Bowl. It’s Year 2 with Brady and if Evans stays healthy, Joe expects a more consistent season from Evans and about 1,400 yards receiving.

Fun fact: Evans should pass 1,000 targets in his Bucs career around midseason.

    Tom and Mike on one leg were leading the NFL in TD early in 2020.

    That’s grown man playing football right there. He knows when the play is over and knows when to drag MFERS over the goal line.

  6. DaBux Says:

    Can you imagine if teams are stupid enough to double team Mike just how many TDs everyone else will catch? It’s terrifying to think just how wide open Miller will be.

    Sometimes the inside scoop is a little too “inside”.

    Don’t need to hear about bodily juices.

    With the weapons on this team, Evans, Godwin, Brown, Miller, Gronk, etc, I can’t imagine any of them getting 1,400 yards. But I hope so! If ME gets 1,400 yards, the opposing defense will focus on him and leave the rest of the team “wide azz open”!

    Comparing him to Julio Jones??? Smh
    A Jerry Rice comparison is more accurate.
    C’mon Joe!

    Eh, don’t say he is like Jerry…different type of receiver. I really don’t think anyone has the offensive power the Bucs have. As long as we don’t suffer an injury bug, we should lead the league in offense. I actually don’t expect Brady to have as good a year as last year. They are going to have to use that running game, of which they have some talent back there. I still like Rojo over Lenny, he just seems to hit the hole harder. What a huge change from his rookie year.
