Your NFL Leader In Touchdown Catches

December 24th, 2023

So how much might Mike Evans, the greatest receiver in Buccaneers history, command in free agency next season?

After today’s big day, Evans is not just having a strong season, the future Hall of Famer has been elite all year long.

In fact, Evans now leads the NFL in touchdown catches after his two TDs today in the rout of Jacksonville.

Leads the NFL. He’s got 13 touchdown catches.

Evans is a young 30 years old considering he’s never had a major injury and is in A+ shape. He would command top dollar if the Bucs let him hit the market. Betting on Mike Evans having three strong seasons in his durable body at 31, 32 and 33 years old is one heck of a good bet.

Joe and Ira Kaufman argued on the Ira Kaufman Podcast about who is a more important free agent to be re-signed after this season — Evans or Antoine Winfield Jr. It’s a heck of a debate.

Of course, the Bucs can re-sign both, but then they’ll probably want to re-sign Baker Mayfield and Lavonte David, too, and extend the contract of Tristan Wirfs to find more salary cap flexibility. That’s a massive amount of cash, a payout the Bucs might not be able to pull off considering their lack of cap room.

This is what happens when you have a roster with more beasts than most teams.

    First Ballot Hall of Famer

  5. Buc4evr Says:

    League leading 93TDs

  6. I’m tired and 87 is right Says:

    First time as a Bucs fan I am deeply confused. Yet I love the fact this team is built of exactly what I thought of as a true Buccaneer. Pull the sword out of the stone and lead us to victory for all to see. Go Bucs!

  7. Gipper Says:

    Too bad, if only Evans had a QB to throw to him this year? Baker haters take note. Evans has always been on Baker’s side even when you haven’t. Will be fun to see all the converts now. Remember Baker to short, isn’t accurate and all that.? Mike Evans has been in Baker’s corner since training camp. Told all of you weeks ago Baker would be in top 8 of all NFL QB’s in 2023.

    Team is really clicking man!!!
    They look great right now. I’ll give bowels n canals there flowers. They done a great job recently

  9. Wagonwheel50 Says:

    The Aints have returned and are living up to that name. We should crush them next week. Listened to Nick Underhill’s podcast about Baker, and they fans sound like we used too. #GoBucs

  10. Gipper Says:

    It’s Christmas Eve so I am going to forgive the hate Baker brigade. RodMunch,David, BelleGlade and the rest of you have a nice Christmas. Hope you all get a nice slice of crow pie tomorrow with Christmas dinner.

  11. George R Says:

    I have a feeling that Baltimore will make a hard push for him. As most people know the Ravens could use another WR, they got a strong arm QB and Evans and their OC have a history.

  12. Geno711 Says:

    94 career TD receptions.

  13. kgh4life Says:

    If I’m Mike Evans, why would I want to go anywhere else? Up to this point he has had a hall of fame career and won a super bowl and he and Baker have a great repoire.

    Gipper Says: “Told all of you weeks ago Baker would be in top 8 of all NFL QB’s in 2023.”

    I don’t remember that at all….how many weeks ago?

  15. orlbucfan Says:

    Go read Jason Licht’s bio. ME13 was one of his first signings. He’ll cut some dead wood so he can $$$reward the guys who deserve it. ME13 will retire here, and have the well-deserved honor of being the Bucs first offensive player enshrined in Canton.

  16. BradyGronk Fan Says:

    Get 2 more TDs and that will be the new highpoint of ME career with 15. Will likely lead the league in TDs too which would be a first for ME for leading in a passing category.

  17. Jeff Says:

    Bucs have plenty of money. A literal non issue.

  18. Boss Says:

    “ elite all year long.”


  19. Bucsfan007 Says:

    It’s plenty of cap space the budget for nfl teams is going up not to mention the dead money from this year. Joe no need to panic

  20. Buccos Says:

    Evans seems to have overcome the dropsies that he had earlier this year

  21. NEOhiobuc Says:

    Funny thing is Winfield and Evans will get their money. David will come back on slightly bigger deal than he played on last year, after being insulted in FA last year. Mayfield will probably do a lesser than average value deal. One he wants to stay in Tampa and two he knows he needs a team to get a ring. D White will be a cap casualty and gone in FA. Hello extra draft pick. There will be a major shift in cap space for teams this off season and most are for the worse. Talking to you slimy saints.

  22. 1#bucsfan Says:

    Gotta bring them back. You can NOT let 13 , 31 78 54 walk. If 6 finishes strongs then we gotta bring him back to. Would really hate to see 54 go but honestly from a Buisness stand point he would be odd man out and even that is debatable for how great he is playing

  23. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Gulper no one gives a flying filth flarn filth if you forgive any Baker hate. We’re Bucs fans you’re not. We were here long before you and after Baker leaves. You fanbois are the worse. Hanging on to his straps because he makes you all feel good! He has earned it from the non Trask fanbois because he hasn’t played the way a hyped up former #1 pick 6th year vet was supposed to. Sure he’s playing in a new system and coaches but a system doesn’t cause bad decisions and poor accuracy. It has only been the last 2 games where he’s been playing the way you cheerleaders have been chugging on him about. He’s finally playing consistently the way we expected of him. I’ll be glad if he can help the Bucs to multiple titles but will be glad when he leaves so that you and his fangoils will leave with him.

  24. Cover deuce Says:

    They can definitely bring them all back what are you on about.

  25. Gipper Says:


    Calm down man, it’s Christmas. You won’t know what you got until it’s gone. Congratulations even if the learning curve is really longgggggggggggggggggggggggg in your case.

  26. unbelievable Says:

    They can figure out a way. They need to sign them all.

    And this is a giant LOFL at all the mouth breathing losers in here that we’re claiming Evans was finished and that we should have traded him after he a couple drops early in the year.

    I told ya’ll. Dude is a STUD.

  28. itzok Says:

    Pay Evans, as unreal as he has been compare his stats to Jerry Rice. Jesus he is only half way there unreal.

  29. garro Says:

    Some are still saying he is not a first ballot HOFer and that Jason should be fired though.


    Go Bucs!
