Bucs' Mike Evans and wife welcome daughter Ariah



Mike Evans' amazing 2016 has gotten even better, somehow.

Evans and his wife Ashli, married in February, celebrated the birth of daughter Ariah Lynn Evans on Wednesday. Evans, who was excused from Wednesday's practice to be there for her birth, was back at practice Thursday in preparation for Sunday's game at San Diego. Evans also has a young daughter, Mackenzie, and has her name tattooed on his left arm.

On the field, Evans has established himself as one of the best receivers in the NFL, tied for the league lead with 10 touchdown receptions and ranking in the top three in receptions and receiving yards. He is just the fourth player in NFL history to top 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons.
