Mike Evans suspended one game for role in brawl

Mike Evans Sparks Bucs-Saints Brawl With Brutal Cheap Shot On Marshon Lattimore

In a press release sent out on Monday afternoon, the National Football League announced that Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is suspended one game without pay for his late hit on New Orleans Saints defensive back, Marshon Lattimore. Evans went ballistic on Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore after Winston poked the back of Lattimore's helmet as Lattimore walked along Tampa Bay's sideline.

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

The Saints beat the Buccaneers 30-10.

Evans was only penalized Sunday for unsportsmanlike conduct. As the scuffle was broken up, Saints coach Sean Payton marched halfway across the field, gesturing angrily at the Tampa Bay bench before officials chased him back to the Saints' sideline. A Saints player then tackled Evans to get him off Lattimore. "Then Mike Evans came and snapped me from behind". "I thought (Lattimore) was picking a fight with my quarterback".

Evans will appeal the suspension, a source told ESPN's Jenna Laine.

And that's not the only thing Payton had to say after the Saints beat up on the Bucs. I know it went to NY to look at. I talked to Mike after the game. I shouldn't have hit him in his back like that. I was just trying to protect my quarterback. Unprofessional. ... I want to play. "I reacted too quick".
