The melee appeared to begin with Lattimore jawing at Brady. Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette shoved the defensive back, which led to a return shove from Lattimore. Evans escalated it even more by jumping in and pushing Lattimore to the ground.
After the scuffle, Evans could be seen yelling at refs, “That’s Tom Brady, what you want me to do?!?”
The NFL will certainly do something…like give him a fine or suspension for his actions.
If Evans does receive a fine, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Tom Brady help him cover the bill. Evans is exactly they type of guy that Brady wants to go to war with every Sunday — a guy that he knows has his back.
With Evans out of the game, the Bucs seemed to rally around their teammate, taking control of the game and improving to 2-0 on the season following a 20-10 victory.
