Bucs WR Mike Evans eclipses 11,000 receiving yards

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Mike Evans continues to further his legacy in his 10th year with the team.

It was a rough loss for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday against the Houston Texans, but Evans hit a huge milestone during the game. He eclipsed 11,000 yards in his career, becoming the first Buccaneers player to do so and putting him 39th on the list past former Bucs wideout Joey Galloway with 11,019 total yards.

As it stands, Evans is on pace for 78 catches, 1,262 yards and 112 touchdowns, which would be one of his best seasons in Tampa Bay. Evans has never not caught for 1,000 yards in his career, and with quarterback Baker Mayfield ensuring he has gotten the ball so far this season, he looks prime to continue that streak while having another productive year with the Bucs.

Evans was notably embroiled in a contract dispute to start the season. He will be a free agent in 2024, and Tampa Bay will have to make a big decision on whether it wants to spend a lot of money on him going forward. The team will also be faced with paying Mayfield, linebacker Devin White, safety Antoine Winfield Jr. and potentially extending left tackle Tristan Wirfs as well.
