TMZ is reporting that Bucs rookie WR Mike Evans was in a nightclub brawl with bouncers outside of Dream Nightclub in South Beach.

According to Greg Auman, Mike Evans’ agent Deryk Gilmore says that the fight actually happened back in March, before the NFL Draft.

Auman tweeted:

The Buccaneers released a statement from both Mike Evans and Lovie Smith Friday evening.

From the Buccaneers official press release:

STATEMENT FROM WIDE RECEIVER MIKE EVANS
“The incident in question happened during spring break in March while I was vacationing with friends in Miami. The issue occurred at the end of the night when someone in my party was approached by a member of the security staff. The situation escalated very quickly from there, but fortunately no one was injured. I regret that this incident that happened nearly six months ago has become a distraction to my team and I look forward to continuing to prepare for the start of my rookie season with the Buccaneers.”

STATEMENT FROM HEAD COACH LOVIE SMITH
“During his time here since we drafted him in May, Mike has met all of our expectations both on and off the football field. After speaking with Mike, our feelings about him remain unchanged. We expect him to be an important member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for many years to come and we consider this matter closed.”
