After Vikings defeated the Bucs last weekend, the NFL posted a graphic showing how Vikings corner Xavier Rhodes shut down all receivers this season. Mike Evans wasn’t having any of that. He responded saying that the film doesn’t lie. Evans has emerged as one of the League’s top receivers over the past few seasons.
Although Evans had a relatively quite game against the Vikings only having 5 rec. for 53 yards, that’s better than other top receivers such as Antonio Brown and Michael Thomas. Bucs QB James Winston wasn’t much to help throwing for three interceptions on the day.
He wants to be the best receiver. I believe he is the best receiver in the league. I’m biased, but it is what it is. But, he wants to get better every year like we all do. Everyone wants to get better. No one wants to just feel like they arrived.
QB, TB Bucs
It looks like Evans is calling out Rhodes, and it will be interesting to see if a rivalry develops between these two.
