Evans hauled in 70 receptions for 1,006 receiving yards and a career-high 13 touchdowns for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who finished with an 11-5 record and will now be making their first Super Bowl appearance since 2002.

Evans says that he's now Brady's biggest fan, but when he was growing up watching soccer, he was not a fan-favorite of this six-time Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Fame quarterback.

"It is good catching passes from the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time). I never believed I would have the ability to get that opportunity," Evans stated. "When I was a child, I grew up not liking Tom Brady because I had been a Peyton Manning fan. And today I am the largest Tom Brady fan. Thus, it's great being able to catch balls ."

Evans stated when Brady stepped into the Buccaneers' facility, he has been"a terrific teammate and mentor to get."

"The way he carries himself, the way he takes good care of his own body... I've never seen anything like it. I see why he has been able to play for so long," Evans stated. "The way he treats everyone in the facility. Whether it's one of our janitors or someone that is cooking. He just treats everyone with respect, and he is just such a nice guy. I've been studying a lot from him on-and-off the field."

The Buccaneers will square off from the Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LV on Sunday night. If Tampa Bay is going to have success, Brady and Evans will have to connect early and often.
