Knocking on history's door

Since entering the league in 2014, Evans has been quietly setting records. In his seven seasons in Tampa, he has found his way in the organization's record books as he is #1 in career yards (7,873) and career receptions (510). Evans also looks to break his own franchise record for the Most Touchdown's in a Season (12: 2014,2016) as he needs only one to tie.

Evans also holds franchise records in "Most 1,000-yard seasons" and "Most Consecutive 1,000-yard seasons" with six, with Evans being tied for 1st in the NFL with Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss as well in the latter category.

Speaking of consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, with 387 more yards, Evans will become the first player in NFL history to record seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. As mentioned previously, Evans tied with Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss for consecutive seasons, but did become the youngest to accomplish the feat.

History in the making

From his first touchdown (2014:Week 4 vs Pittsburgh) to what is now his 59th touchdown (2020: Week 12 vs Kansas City), Evans has been one of the league's best wideouts since he has entered the league. Currently with 7,373 yards receiving, he sits just outside the Top-100 receivers All-Time list.

Consistancy has been key

With the Bucs on a Week 13 bye, many question if the seventh year wideout with be able to accomplish the legendary feat. Not to worry as I have pulled Evans career stats over the team Bucs week's 13-16 and even the stats show that there is a distinct possibility that Evans will etch his name in the history books.

During that span, Evans has amassed 94 receptions, 1,510 yards and 11 touchdowns, giving Evans just over 16 yards per catch. Even with the weapons that Bucs carry this season, it'll be hard to argue Evans missing this accolade.
