On Thursday, the Bucs made their offensive assistant coaches available to the media, which meant that it was the first time we were able to ask questions of new wide receivers coach Skyler Fulton.
Fulton has been with the team for the last two years as the team’s assistant wide receivers coach under Todd Monken, but since Monken has been move to the full-time offensive coordinator position, Fulton has been promoted to the full-time wide receivers coach.
Fulton, of course, was asked about his star receiver Mike Evans and said that, though some people may try to claim that Evans had a down year because of stats, that was not the case.
Fulton knows and reiterated that Evans does so much more for the offense than just the catch the ball. He said that what makes Evans an elite player is the impact he can still have on the defense even if the ball isn’t thrown his way.
He also correctly referenced that Evans is just one of three players ever to start his career with four 1,000-yard receiving seasons (Randy Moss and A.J. Green are the other two).
Sounds like Fulton fully expects Evans to get his fifth-straight 1,000-yard season in 2018.
