2014 season: Rookie yearEdit

 
Evans in action during his record-setting game against the Washington Redskins in November 2014.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Evans with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, one pick behind teammate Jake Matthews.[26] It was the first time Texas A&M had two Top 7 draft picks in the same draft since John Kimbrough and Jim Thomason in 1941.[27] He was the second wide receiver taken after Sammy Watkins was picked by the Buffalo Bills with the fourth overall pick. On June 12, 2014, Evans signed a four-year rookie contract worth $14.6 million, with an $8.96 million signing bonus.[28]

Evans made his professional regular season debut in the Buccaneers' season-opener against the Carolina Panthers and made five receptions for 37-yards.[29] On September 28, 2014, Evans had caught four passes for 65 receiving yards and caught his first career touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Mike Glennon in a 27–24 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.[30] In Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, Evans caught seven passes for 124 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a 22–17 loss.[31] The following week, he had seven catches for 125 receiving yards and a touchdown in a 27-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.[32] On November 16, 2014, in a 27–7 victory over the Washington Redskins, Evans caught seven passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns.[33][34] He became the first rookie receiver to have three consecutive games of 100 yards and at least one touchdown since Randy Moss in 1998.[35] He also became the youngest player in NFL history to catch for 200 or more yards in one game.[36] Evans is also the fifth rookie since the Super Bowl era to record 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a game, the last player was Anquan Boldin in 2003.[37] He received NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for his performance.[38]

Evans finished his rookie season with 68 receptions for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns, setting franchise records and becoming a part of the first pair of Buccaneers receivers (alongside veteran Vincent Jackson) to receive 1,000 yards in a single season together.[39][40] Evans was ranked fourth in receiving touchdowns and was 1 of 15 players to score 10 touchdowns.[41]

2015 seasonEdit

On September 20, 2015, Evans appeared in his first game of the season against the New Orleans Saints after missing the season-opener with a hamstring injury.[42] The next week, Evans caught seven passes for 101 receiving yards in a 19-9 loss to the Houston Texans.[43] During Week 7 against the Washington Redskins, Evans caught eight passes for a season-high 164 yards and a touchdown in a 31-30 loss.[44] On November 8, 2015, Evans caught eight passes for 150 receiving yards in a 32-18 loss to the New York Giants.[45] The following game, he finished with another eight receptions for 126 yards during a 10-6 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.[46] On December 17, 2015, he made a season-high nine receptions for 157 yards against the St. Louis Rams.[47]

Through 15 games, Evans racked up 1,206 yards and three touchdowns, with an average of 16.3 yards per catch.[48] Among sophomore wide receivers, Evans was ranked third in receiving yards (behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Allen Robinson).[49] He was also ranked 11th in the league in receiving yards, one of only 26 players to break 1,000 yards and one of 11 players to break 1,200 yards.[50]

2016 seasonEdit

Evans started the Buccaneers' 2016 season-opener making five receptions for 99-yards and a touchdown in a 31-24 defeat of the Atlanta Falcons.[51] On September 25, 2016, Evans caught 10 passes for 132 receiving yards and a touchdown in a 37-32 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.[52] Evans became the first player in the Buccaneers' history to catch a touchdown pass in three consecutive games to start a season. During a Week 7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Evans caught eight passes for 96-yards and two touchdowns.[53] On November 3, 2016, he caught a season-high 11 passes for 150 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a 43-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.[54] He caught a pass on the sidelines which was debated as the "catch of the year" at NFL.com and suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit on the play and was placed on concussion protocol.[55] On November 27, 2016, he caught eight passes for 104 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a 14-5 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, becoming the fourth player in NFL history to begin his career with three consecutive seasons of 1,000 yards receiving, as well as the first receiver in franchise history to receive two touchdowns in the first quarter of a game.[56] On December 20, 2016, Evans was selected to the Pro Bowl, the first of his career. His selection made him the first Buccaneers receiver since Vincent Jackson in 2012 to be picked, and the first receiver drafted by the Buccaneers to be selected for the Pro Bowl since Mark Carrier in 1989. On January 1, 2017, Evans caught 5 passes for 65 yards and 1 touchdown in a 17-16 win against the Carolina Panthers tying his franchise record of 12 receiving touchdowns in a single season.[57]

Evans finished his third season off with 96 receptions for 1,321 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 16 starts.[58] He was ranked 29th by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2017.[59]

2017 seasonEdit

On April 17, 2017, the Buccaneers picked up the fifth-year option on Evans's contract.[60]

Due to Hurricane Irma, Evans and the Buccaneers had to move their Week 1 game to later in the season. On September 17, 2017, in his season debut in Week 2, Evans recorded seven receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown in the 29–7 victory over the Chicago Bears.[61] Over the next three games, Evans had one touchdown and averaged 61 yards, before a 95-yard performance with a touchdown in the Week 6 loss to Arizona,[62] followed by 88 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Buffalo Bills. In Week 8, Evans was held to 60 yards before a disastrous Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints. Not only was Evans held to 13 yards, he involved himself in a fight between Saints rookie Marshon Lattimore and injured teammate Jameis Winston. Evans was not ejected, but flagged for a personal foul,[63] and later suspended one game[64] despite an appeal.[65] He returned with 92- and 78-yard efforts, before two more poor weeks of 25 and 33 yards. In Week 15, Evans had his first touchdown in eight weeks, en route to 79 yards in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons.[66] Week 16 was Evans' only 100+ yard game of the season, 107 yards on six receptions in another loss to the Carolina Panthers. In Week 17's 31-24 win over the New Orleans Saints, Evans became the 3rd receiver in NFL history to begin his career with four consecutive years of 1,000 yards receiving after catching five passes for 55 yards.[67] Overall, he finished the 2017 season with a team-leading 71 receptions for 1,001 receiving yards, but only five receiving touchdowns for the 5-11 Buccaneers.[68]

2018 seasonEdit

On March 9, 2018, Evans signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension with the Buccaneers with $55 million guaranteed.[69]

On September 8, Evans caught seven passes for 147 yards and a touchdown in a season-opening 48-40 win over defending the NFC South champion New Orleans Saints.[70] The next week, Evans caught ten passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in a 27-21 win over the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.[71] In a 30-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football in Week 3, Evans caught 6 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown, breaking the Buccaneers franchise record for touchdown receptions in a career with his 35th.[72] After being held to 59 yards in Week 4 and a bye week, Evans caught four passes for 58 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, breaking Mark Carrier's Buccaneers franchise record for receiving yards in a career. The following week, Evans caught 7 passes for 107 yards in a 26-23 win over the Cleveland Browns, his 16th game with 100+ receiving yards again breaking a Mark Carrier franchise record.[73] Evans then led all NFL receivers in Week 8 with 179 yards (a career second-best) on six receptions in a 37-34 loss to Cincinnati, which included a career-long 72 yard reception for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.[74] The next two weeks were far less successful: In Week 9, Evans had just one reception for 16 yards on 10 targets against the Carolina Panthers,[75] and three receptions for 51 yards in Week 10. He rebounded in Week 11's 38-35 loss to the New York Giants with six catches for 120 yards and a touchdown and recovered a fumble by quarterback Jameis Winston in the end zone for another touchdown. In Week 12, he again broke the century mark with 116 yards on six receptions in the 27-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers.[76] In the game, he passed 1,000 receiving yards on the season, joining Randy Moss and A. J. Green as the only receivers in NFL history to begin their careers with five consecutive 1,000+ yard seasons.[77] In Week 17, during a 34-32 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Evans caught six passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns; with that performance Evans broke the Buccaneers franchise for receiving yards in a single season and became the youngest receiver in league history to reach 6,000 yards receiving in a career.

Evans finished his fifth season with 86 receptions for a career-high (and franchise record setting) 1,524 yards and nine total touchdowns. On January 7, 2019, Evans was selected to his second Pro Bowl as an injury replacement for Julio Jones.[78] As a result, Evans became the first Buccaneers wide receiver in franchise history to be selected to multiple Pro Bowls.
