The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gearing up to defend their Super Bowl championship when the regular season officially kicks off later this week, and wide receiver Mike Evans says that the offense may be even better than it was last year.
Evans discussed how his chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady has vastly improved over the offseason.
“We’re miles ahead of what we were last year,” Evans said, according to Pro Football Talk. “Not just me and his connection, but the whole team, the whole offense. It’s really exciting and hopefully we can do something really special this year.”
Evans is also looking to build off of last season, where he collected a career-high 13 touchdowns.
“I always try to work on YAC,” Evans said. “I always try to work on that and be in the best shape possible because if I’m in good shape and I’m healthy, I feel like I’m the best receiver on the planet. I just try to work on that mainly.”
