The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have some of the most iconic athletes in the NFL. With Tom Brady back to deal with some unfinished business, the Bucs franchise has the most desirable line-ups in the whole league. Even Tom Brady has a tremendous amount of respect for wide receivers and considers it a true privilege to battle besides Mike Evans.

Watching Tom Brady and Mike Evans on the field is a true magic to witness on the gridiron. Despite his current statistics, incredible dependability, and overwhelming dominance, WR Evans has been one of the league’s most undervalued performers. He is without a doubt the finest wide receiver in the Buccaneers’ existence.

When it comes to wide receivers, Brady, undoubtedly the most successful quarterback in league history, knows where would Mike Evans fit in historically.

Tom Brady has the classic choices of players

Tom Brady discusses playing with WR Evans on the latest issue of ‘In The Current’. “When you’re in my position, you’re looking at other players, you know. That’s what you’re looking for. You’re looking for someone that’s going to be great every day. It’s been a real privilege for me to play with him. He’s one of the all-time NFL greats.”

To say the very least, the GOAT is exuberant in his compliments. Evans is unquestionably on his path to becoming a Hall of Famer. He isn’t in his 30s yet and has a long football career ahead of him.

Mike Evans is the first player in League history to start his profession with eight straight 1,000-yard catching campaigns, and he has more touchdown grabs (75) than anyone else since his debut. The WR will be in the top ten in touchdown catches and top 20 in yardage in NFL history if he sustains his regular-season average for 3 consecutive campaigns.

Brady recognizes what an outstanding professional athlete looks like, and his firsthand encounter with Evans has certainly reassured him of just what Bucs fans have understood for a long period. Mike Evans began his career in the Bay. Since then, he has been an absolute banger as he continues to stay in the franchise. With much more plays left in the saddle, it is yet to see how the WR performs in the year 2022 alongside Tom Brady.
