Mike Evans Responds to Keenan Allen Call-Out on Twitter
The "NFL 100" list has started to be rolled out, and like it does every offseason, it's causing plenty of arguments and drama.
Keenan Allen, who had a solid No. 77 ranking on the list, took to Twitter to call out some of the wide receivers ranked ahead of him, including Tyreek Hill, Chris Godwin and Mike Evans.
Evans was quick to fire back at Allen.
Evans was quick to highlight Allen's funny mistake — tagging someone named "Chris Goodwin," and not Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin. Goodwin hasn't tweeted since 2013, so he may never find out what Allen thinks of his wide receiver skills.
Evans then goes on to say that Allen isn't on his level.
Realistically, it can be tough to compare Evans and Allen, as they play the position differently. Allen tends to see more volume but works best on shorter routes, having averaged 11.5 yards per catch on 104 receptions in 2019. Evans, on the other hand, caught just 67 balls but averaged 17.3 yards per reception.
The "NFL 100" list is a funny thing. Many players reveal how little thought they put into the voting process, and even Evans highlights that he doesn't care about the rankings.
But even still, every summer fans and players alike get pulled into some heated debates about the list.
