He has had at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first eight NFL seasons.
The former Texas A&M standout established his career high in 2018 with 1,524 yards.
However, he caught 27 touchdowns in two seasons with Brady, including what could have been the legend’s final touchdown pass.
That backstory immediately turned false when Brady announced his return for his 23rd season.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner used that story about the ball’s sale price to share his plans with Evans.
But now that Brady is back, Evans can continue to build his resume for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
What’s fascinating, though, is that he’s aware of being on track for Canton.
Mike Evans knows his career stats (606-9,301-75 TD) thru age 28 off the top of his head.
Evans is on a Hall of Fame track.
"That's what I'm working for, why not? I'm trying to be the best in the game right now, and ultimately one of the best to ever play," Evans told me: pic.twitter.com/tBQss8ovF8

Evans Could Become A Pro Football Hall Of Fame Inductee
When KPRC 2 Houston sports anchor and reporter Ari Alexander asked if he had an idea about his career stats, Evans gave close estimates.
Alexander then asked if he is aware that he could have a bronze bust and a gold jacket if he maintains his production.
To which, Evans responded, “Yeah of course. I think about it but obviously, I try to stay in the moment as much as possible. That’s what I’m working for, why not? I’m trying to be the best in the game right now, and ultimately one of the best to ever play. I have the tools to do that. I’ve been blessed and extremely favored so why not do it?”
However, he still has a lot of football in front of him, giving him more opportunities to rack up yards and touchdowns.
But since he likes to stay in the moment, he would like to help the Buccaneers get another Super Bowl title while Brady is still playing.NEXT: Mike Evans Explains How Tom Brady Announced He Was Returning
