Tom Brady criticises NFL over Mike Evans suspension: “Punishment is ridiculous!”

Following the brawl at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game at the New Orleans Saints, Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans has been suspended by the NFL. His quarterback Tom Brady publicly criticizes the punishment and defends his wide receiver.

New Orleans/Munich – Tom Brady has spoken. After the brawl in the victory of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the New Orleans Saints (20:10), the star quarterback defends his wide receiver Mike Evans, who just like Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore was kicked off the field after a scuffle.

Brady can’t understand the league’s subsequent verdict.

“I love Mike and the fact that he comes out on the field to defend me means everything to me. In the end, emotions are part of sports and sometimes they boil over like they did on Sunday,” the 45-year-old Brady said.

Brady criticises league ruling: “Ruling is ridiculous!”

What happened? Shortly after the start of the fourth quarter, Brady and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore got into a verbal altercation after a fumbled Bucs drive. Evans came running from the sideline to defend his quarterback and knocked Lattimore to the ground.

What happened? Shortly after the start of the fourth quarter, Brady and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore got into a verbal altercation after a fumbled Bucs drive. Evans came running from the sideline to defend his quarterback and knocked Lattimore to the ground.

With that, the league deemed the Bucs wide receiver to be the cause of the brawl and suspended him for one game. As a result, Evans will miss Tom Brady as a starting center against the Green Bay Packers led by star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Counterpart Lattimore of the Saints and all the other players involved in the ensuing fracas got off with a fine.

Brady thinks the verdict is ridiculous

A fact that Brady clearly criticises. If the GOAT’s opinion is anything to go by, there should have been no penalties at all. “I think the verdict is ridiculous. I hope we can forget about it now and move on,” the Bucs playmaker said.

He appreciates Evans coming to his rescue and believes his wide receiver will learn from the incident.

The 29-year-old now has time to do so ahead of, of all things, the Bucs’ important game against Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers. According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Evans will appeal the suspension.
