Mike Evans is well-known around the NFL as an elite wide receiver.
Throughout his nine-year career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Evans has achieved 1,000 yards in every season.
While Evans is known for his on-field play, it appears that he is diving into a different field.
According to the Mike Evans Family Foundation, Evans has recently published a children’s book, titled “The Middle School Rules of Mike Evans.”

While this news incited excitement in many fans of Evans and the Buccaneers, one fan found themselves in a panicked situation.
All I saw was "released" and almost panicked.

In the foundation’s original tweet, the first three words are “Mike has released,” which this fan initially interpreted as him being released from the Buccaneers.
Evans will continue to play for the Buccaneers in 2023, but this book is an additional endeavor for him.
After this initial shock, many fans showed their support, both for Evans and for this book as well.
Mike is not only one of the best receivers in NFL, but a very nice and honest human being, indeed👍 Honor to watch him play!

As this fan dictates, Evans is a nice and honest person, and his talents transcend the sport of football.
Evans teamed up with Sean Jensen to write this book, which has also received praise from fans across the league.
Cool to see this — @seankjensen is a former NFL writer, so looking forward to reading his children's book with Mike Evans. https://t.co/oGsXeeB9wk

As Greg Auman points out, Jensen was once a writer for the NFL, and his collaboration with Evans is something that many are looking forward to.

Rick Stroud, a longtime Buccaneers reporter, also echoed his thoughts on Jensen’s writing abilities.
Evans’ book launch happened a few weeks before the NFL draft, where the Buccaneers will look to improve and grow their roster.NEXT: Fans React To Today's John Elway News
