The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could well be in for an exciting season, for the first time in quite a while.
After tanking their way to the first overall pick in the 2015 Draft, the Buccaneers were rewarded for their troubles with former Heisman winning quarterback Jameis Winston, a man who can actually pass the football.
The Bucs will be pairing Winston up with Mike Evans, a revelation from the previous year's draft who looks like a future Pro Bowler and All-Pro selection in the making.
Evans isn't settling with just being a potential-filled player however, and is taking steps to ensure his sophomore season is rewarded with a trip to Hawaii.
In a bid to make sure he improves on his impressive rookie year, Evans teamed up in the off-season with a guy who knows a thing or two about being a star wideout in National Football League, one Randy Moss.
"It was just me and him," Evans said, according to the Bucs' official website. "I was up for there in North Carolina for about a week at the end of March. There's a lot of knowledge there, man."
The two receivers do have a fair bit in common, with both specializing in coming down with contested catches, taking full advantage of long arms, big hands, a huge vertical leap and uncanny body control.
"I think he's the best to ever do it," Evans added. "Working with him, I think it will take my game to the next level."
During his 14-year career, Moss caught 156 touchdowns, second all-time to Jerry Rice. He holds the single-season records for touchdown receptions in a season with 23 and recorded the third-most receiving yards in NFL history. Mike Evans has one hell of a mentor.
Evans broke the Bucs’ single-season record for receiving touchdowns with 12 as a rookie, and if he keeps those kind of numbers up for too long, he will start to be mentioned in the same breath as the man whose brains he is picking.
