Tampa Bay Rookie WR Mike Evans Throws Up at First Practice
So Mike--you feel like callin' some dinosaurs?
Professional football players are supposed to be among the best athletes in the world. True, we hear stories about guys not reporting to camp in shape but the recently drafted rookies?
Weren’t they just spending the last few months working out for the combine, Pro Day workouts, and personal workouts?
Apparently Tampa Bay’s first round pick didn’t work out enough—and vomited.
"I was a little out of shape and threw up after conditioning."
Was he really out of shape though? Could he have been sick? Or nervous? Or any of a number of things?
After practice he sent a text to his former position coach at Texas A&M, David Beaty.
"He texted me right after," Beaty said by phone
on Saturday. "'Guess what? I threw up after conditioning.' I wrote him back, 'You did that every winter!' "
So nothing to worry about here Buccaneers fans. It’s all just part of his routine.
