TAMPA, Fla. — Milestones in Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans’ life leave a mark on his skin. Moments already inked included the NFL shield for his draft position and his daughter’s name. The Lombardi Trophy could be next.
“But I do mark my moments with tattoos,” Evans said. “If we win, absolutely, I’m getting a Lombardi somewhere on me. Not my face. Maybe neck, back, or somewhere on my arms. I’m definitely going to mark it if we get the W.”
Buccaneers linebacker Devin White is hoping to do something different — like ride his horse in the stadium like he did at LSU.
“If we get the W, I don’t care what they say,” White said. “I’m bringing that horse out and holding the Lombardi Trophy riding around that whole stadium. They can do whatever they want to do. I’m going to be on top of the world.”
To get there, the Bucs are one win away. A surreal moment for vans who missed the playoffs during each of his first six seasons in Tampa Bay.
“I had some doubts, definitely,” Evans said. “I just did my job, and our front office did a great job of putting this team together — this unbelievable team. We’ve been working hard. we’ve always had talent. it was just getting over the hump, beating ourselves with dumb penalties and things like that.”
