While a reporter kept correcting Evans on the new name for the stadium, he wasn’t having any of it with them.
“I’m always remembering it as Heinz Field, no disrespect.” was the powerful statement from the Buc’s receiver.
While he’s not a Steeler, he has a love for playing against the Steelers on their turf.
His first year in the league was when he dealt with some of the best Steelers’ defenders of that time.
With him paying respect to those players, he also pays respect to the stadium, which he’ll always remember as Heinz Field.
