Mike evans Ejected
Evans pushed Lattimore to the ground and both men were ejected from the game.
Prior to the incident, Brady has already been seen throwing his tablet to the ground and yelling at teammates.
Some pundits believe Brady’s off-the-field issues are to blame for his anger against the Saints, but the QB’s rage was more than likely due to wanting a win against his nemesis.
Brady and the Bucs move to 2-0 to start the 2022 NFL season and will take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady started a brawl against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday that got his teammate Mike Evans ejected.

Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore both were ejected for their involvement in a several-player, after-the-whistle scrap in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s meeting in the Superdome.
This marked the second time since 2017 that Evans has been thrown out of a game in the dome for flattening Lattimore after the Saints top defensive back had been squaring off with another Buccaneers player.
This time, it started after a third-down incomplete pass with Tom Brady shouting at Lattimore.
As Lattimore responded, running back Leonard Fournette stepped in and shoved Lattimore, who shoved Fournette back.
That’s when Evans came running in from near the sideline and knocked Lattimore off his feet.
Saints safety Marcus Maye then tried to grab Evans, only to have Evans slam him to the turf while both were engulfed by a swarm of players from both teams.
Officials conferred and elected to assess offsetting personal fouls on just Evans and Lattimore, and ejected both.
Mike evans Injury
Managers a roller coaster ride heading into Week 2. Evans was seen at practice with his calf taped Wednesday before being absent Thursday.
After he returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday, Evans was listed as questionable on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 2 injury report.
The signs on Sunday morning appear to be promising regarding Evans being active for Week 2, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Evans is expected to be playing against the Saints this week.
What was also intriguing is that when NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport provided his morning updates a few hours later, Evans was not listed among the Buccaneers’ injury updates.
While it appears positive news regarding Evans’ status, his being active will leave fantasy managers scratching their heads about what to do. Let’s look at the situation for Evans in Week 2.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Evans with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, one pick after his college teammate Jake Matthews.
It was the first time Texas A&M had two Top 7 draft picks in the same draft since John Kimbrough and Jim Thomason in 1941.
On June 12, 2014, Evans signed a four-year rookie contract worth $14.6 million, with an $8.96 million signing bonus.

He became the first rookie receiver to have three consecutive games of 100 yards and at least one touchdown since Randy Moss in 1998.
He also became the youngest player in NFL history to catch for 200 or more yards in one game.
Evans was also the fifth rookie of the Super Bowl era to record 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a game, the first player to accomplish that feat since Anquan Boldin in 2003.
