Mike Evans Impressed with Jameis Winston

WR Mike Evans spoke to the media about his new QB, Jameis Winston, on Friday when he arrived at team facilities for training camp.


On Friday, 90 Buccaneers players arrived at team facilities for this year's training camp. A few Bucs were stopped by reporters as they entered the building, including second-year wide receiver, Mike Evans. READ: TRAINING CAMP SCHEDULE

Evans, who set a Buccaneer record last season with 12 receiving touchdowns, was asked a handful of questions, some of which inevitably revolved around the team's No. 1 draft pick, Jameis Winston.

He had nothing but good things to say about the Bucs' new signal-caller.

"I think he'll be a great player," Evans said. "He works hard, (he has a) great motor and (he's) an amazing football talent."

Evans continued, "He's one of the hardest workers I've been around, so I think he'll do fine."

The Bucs left team facilities after mini-camp in June, but Evans was able to work with Winston and a few of the Bucs' receivers on his own up in Tallahassee. Evans said that the extra work has helped him create a relationship with with the rookie. 

Evans echoed what's been said by a handful of Winston's teammates thus far; back in May, fellow wide receiver Kenny Bell said that Winston was the "best roommate (he's) ever had."

Winston and the Bucs' rookies reported for training camp on Monday, but have been working mostly in the classroom since arriving. Evans, Bell and Winston will all take the field together on Saturday, August 1st when the Bucs open training camp to the public.
