To our readers: Mike Evans' 2016 NFL Catch of the Year and the big Bucs' offseason catches — DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin — inspired us to mark the start of the 2017 season with a series of stories celebrating "The Catch." We hope you enjoy them.



 

If Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans produces another season like his first three, he's going to be within striking distance of the team records for receiving yards and touchdowns. And he just celebrated his 24th birthday.

You've heard the comparisons to Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and A.J. Green. But maybe it's time to consider how Evans measures up with recent NFL greats such as Randy Moss and Torry Holt.
