You don’t have to talk to Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans for long before you get the hang of who he is and the heart he has for others. After signing his $82 million dollar extension this offseason, one of the first things Evans said was that he was going to help a lot of people with that money.

This week he (again) kept that promise by donating $11,000 to the family of Gregory Hill, who was shot and killed by a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office deputy in 2014.

Back in March when Evans signed his extension, this is what he told the media.

“It’s hard to put into words. With my actions, you’ll see it,” Evans said. “I just started my foundation, and I plan on helping a lot of people. I heard Denzel Washington say one time that it’s not about the amount of money you have, it’s about what you do with the money you have.”
