I don’t think it’s any secret to Bucs fans or to fans of any other teams that Tampa has one of the top wide receiver duos in the NFL with Evans and Godwin.
NFL.com analyst David Carr thinks so too. In fact, in his article “Bucs’ Mike Evans, Chris Godwin among NFL’s top WR duos”, he has them as the third-best WR duo in the league.
Carr writes, “Evans and Godwin both ranked in the top four in receiving yards per game last season: Evans was fourth, with 89 YPG; Godwin was second, with 95.2 YPG. So, as you might expect, given that piece of information, they led all receiving duos in receiving yards and were second in receiving TDs in 2019. Evans has been one of the best players at his position since he entered the league — he’s one of just two players in NFL history with 1,000-plus receiving yards in each of his first six seasons (joining Hall of Famer Randy Moss) — while Godwin has steadily improved in all facets over his first three seasons to reach the standard the Bucs hoped he would when they picked him in the third round of the 2017 draft.”
With all of the weapons at Tom Brady’s disposal, we’ll see how things play out for Evans and Godwin this season, but its safe to say it will be one heck of an aerial assault.
