Mike Evans suspended for hit on Marshon Lattimore

  • Jameis Winston had a rough day at the hands of the Saints defense. More

Evans was penalized 15 yards for his role in the altercation.

The hit, which Evans called "unprofessional", occurred in the third quarter of the Saints' 30-10 win against the Buccaneers.

Jon Runyan, the NFL Vice President of Football Operations said in a letter to Evans.

Then out of nowhere, Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans came flying in and jumped into Lattimore's back, shoving him hard and knocking him face-first into the Superdome turf.

Evans was only penalized Sunday for unsportsmanlike conduct.

"I know it went to NY to look at, and if there's not an ejection in that situation, then I don't know when there's supposed to be an ejection", Payton said.

Bowe Bergdahl spared prison time for US Army desertion
Bergdahl "is grateful to everyone who searched for him in 2009, especially those who heroically sustained injuries", Fidell added. Army Colonel Jeffery Nance delivered the sentence in a hearing that lasted just two minutes, and did not comment on his decision.


Evans most definitely should have been ejected in the game for his actions. Evans drilled Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore after Lattimore pushed Jameis Winston, who poked him in the head.

Under the CBA, Evans has three business days to appeal the suspension.

Tampa Bay backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick missed on a third-down deep ball to receiver DeSean Jackson with Lattimore in coverage. That's not acceptable either.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he didn't see the interaction or Evans' hit.

"If I would have known what I know [now], Mike probably should have been ejected". I want to help my team. "I thought [Lattimore] was picking a fight with my quarterback".
