As he fully recovered from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for a portion of spring practices, Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie wide receiver Mike Evans acknowledged that he gained a few unwanted pounds.
"Physically, I'm not in tip-top shape. I'm getting back into my game shape," Evans recently told the Tampa Bay Times. "As far as injury-wise, I feel good. I've been running, and I feel 100 percent."
Evans said he wants to lose seven to 10 pounds. He's been working out down in Miami with Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
"I've got to lose more weight. I'm too heavy right now," Evans said. "But the workouts I've been doing, I'll be fine. I'll be ready."
