Mike Evans left Sunday’s game against the Colts with a hamstring injury and has officially been ruled out for the rest of the season. Evans caught a 61-yard touchdown pass before he went down on Sunday making that his last catch of the year.
The former Texas A&M Aggie has been the one bright spot of the Tampa Bay offense for the past few seasons. Since joining the league in 2014, Evans has never had a season with less than 1000 yards receiving, including this season where with 3 games left un-played the young veteran has 1157 yards receiving.
Despite the big numbers this season, Quarterback Jameis Winston is on the hot seat in Tampa Bay. On its surface, 4115 yards passing and 26 touchdowns look good for a QB, but Winston leads the league with 23 interceptions, 7 more than the next QB Baker Mayfield.
Evans signed an $83 million 5-year extension last season with a guaranteed $55 million. His QB, however, is due for a new deal and he could be looking at this being his last year in Tampa.
