Buccaneers WR Mike Evans: 'I'm too heavy right now'
Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is doing well with his injury but needs to lose some weight.
But right now getting Evans in shape is probably a bigger concern. The former Texas A&M standout tweaked his hamstring in OTAs and admitted he's "not in tip-top shape" at the moment.
"Physically, I'm not in tip-top shape. I'm getting back into my game shape," Evans said per the Tampa Bay Times. "As far as injury-wise, I feel good. I've been running, and I feel 100 percent."
Part of Evans issue is he's not in the right spot with his weight and the rook said he's "too heavy right now."
"I've got to lose more weight. I'm too heavy right now," Evans said. "But the workouts I've been doing, I'll be fine. I'll be ready."
No clue whether he means "fat" heavy or "muscle" heavy, but since it's the offseason, it's probably not the latter.
But you know what happens when you tweak a hamstring and can't work out? You gain a little weight.
The important thing for Evans is getting his hamstring healthy; Josh McCown's got some lobs to throw his way and if he can't get deep past cornerbacks it's going to severely limit what the Buccaneers can do on offense.
