Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans admits it feels “surreal” that he will get to play alongside Tom Brady in 2020

Count Mike Evans as one of the many in Tampa Bay who are ecstatic that Tom Brady is a member of the Buccaneers.

The Veteran wide receiver, who has been a Pro Bowler three of the past four years, is beyond excited that he will be catching passes from the greatest quarterback of all-time in 2020.

“It’s surreal…He’s about to be my quarterback, man. I know you don’t know football like that, but I’ve played six years in the NFL, and I haven’t been to the playoffs yet. Tom Brady has won six Super Bowls.” said Evans.

the 26-year old was already putting up great numbers with a mediocre quarterback at the helm, so you can only imagine how productive he will be with Brady calling the shots. In 2019, Evans posted 1157 receiving yards, 67 receptions and eight touchdowns over 13 games.

Brady, along with Evans and star receiver Chris Godwin, are aiming to lead the Buccaneers to their first postseason appearance since 2007.

NFL coming to Germany?

The NFL looks poised to expand their reach in the European market beyond the United Kingdom.

The league announced that a German city will host an NFL regular season game in the near future. They are hoping for next season, but 2023 remains a more realistic goal due to scheduling conflicts that result from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The biding war to host an NFL contest is down to three German cities; Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

“After an initial period in which expressions of interest were received from multiple cities, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich have been invited to proceed to the `candidate phase’ of the process,” the league said in a statement. “Those cities will now participate in deeper conversations about staging games in Germany.” said the NFL in the statement.

More to come.

Jaguars trade cornerback CJ Henderson to Panthers

CJ Henderson’s tenure in Jacksonville did not last long.

Just over a year after picking him 9th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars have dealt the sophomore cornerback and a 2022 fifth round draft pick to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for tight end Dan Arnold and a 2022 third round selection.

Henderson, who many experts thought was picked way too high in the 2020 Draft, ended up playing in just 10 combined games for the Jaguars. He recorded just 44 combined tackles, six passes defended, one forced fumble and one interception during that span.

The Jaguars have had a disappointing start to 2021, going 0-3 despite a shiny new head coach and the first overall pick as their new starting quarterback.
