Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is appealing his one-game suspension today, and he’ll have former NFL wide receiver James Thrash hearing his case.

Evans’ appeal is set for today with Thrash making the determination about whether to uphold the suspension, according to multiple reports.

Thrash is hired and paid jointly by the NFL and NFL Players Association, so he should be a fair and unbiased arbiter of whether or not Evans deserves the suspension for decking Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore on Sunday.

Thrash also heard Evans’ appeal when he was suspended in 2017 for another on-field altercation with Lattimore. Thrash upheld Evans’ suspension that time.

After playing for more than a decade in Philadelphia and Washington, Thrash began hearing appeals of NFL discipline since 2015.

  1. Great receiver that has issues with anger management. Perhaps some classes on how to be nice to DB’s. Maybe invite Lattimore over for chips and dips as gesture of good will. =)

  2. Since this stuff between Evans and Lattimore happens over and over, maybe the right penalty is to suspend both of them for the Week 13 Bucs/Saints rematch. Bet you wouldn’t see the same stuff between them in 2023 if that happened.

  3. Lattimore was having his usual great game against Evans and he was frustrated, and saw this moment as an opportune time to take a cheap shot at Lattimore. The kind of shot he couldn’t get on the field of play during the game…cheap shot artist he should sit Sunday

  4. Lattimore should be suspende… just because he’s been tackled out of no where twice? What are you people smoking??
