Days after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get their 2020 NFL schedule, Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans praised incoming superstar quarterback as a “franchise changer.”
During a video chat on Instagram with former Bucs receiver Louis Murphy, Evans praised former quarterback Jameis Winston, who landed a role as the New Orleans Saints backup, before talking about Brady.
“The opportunity to get Tom Brady. Like, that’s Tom Brady, bro. Like that’s the greatest of all-time. He’s franchise changer. Like he’s about to change the franchise. Like, ticket sales are going through the roof. Like prime time games. And he understands the game of football to nobody else understands that level besides the greats and it’s going to be great to work with him, you understand what I’m saying. The young receiving corps we got, the tight ends we’ve got, we’ve got Gronk coming in…it’s going to be great for the city. And it’s going to be just great overall. Hopefully we have a great season, everybody stays healthy and it pans out the way we want.”
2020 will feature the Buccaneers with six prime time games, a franchise high and the addition of Rob Gronkowski at tight end, to reunite with Brady, has elevated the Bucs to contenders.
Evans is tied with Randy Moss for the NFL record of having at least 1,000 yards receiving every season (six) at the beginning of his career.
Brady came to the Bucs as a free agent after his incredible career in New England, winning six Super Bowls and landing the title of “GOAT” – Greatest of All-Time.
