Buccaneers Have High Hopes for Mike Evans

I could make an argument for Mike Evans being the biggest part of the phenomenon that was Johnny Manziel's career at Texas A&M. Things get much easier in the pocket if you have a giant, muscled up receiver to just heave the football to when you get in trouble. Evans was the go to guy for Johnny Football, especially when things were breaking down and the quarterback was...
