Report: Bucs rookie in fight at Miami club

Miami, Florida -- Video surfaced on TMZSports on Friday afternoon of Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie wide receiver Mike Evans involved in a brawl at a Miami nightclub.

10 Sports learned in a conversation with Evans' agent Deryk Gillmore of Priority Sports Entertainment that the altercation happened in March.

On that night, Evans was asked to leave the VIP section of Dream Nightclub for not wearing the proper 21 and up wrist band. According to Gillmore, the then 20-year-old Evans, agreed to leave.

Upon exiting the club, Evans wanted to go back inside to bring his girlfriend outside and that's when tempers flared.

In the video, Evans can be seen throwing and exchanging punches with bouncers. At one point, the No. 7 overall pick in this year's NFL draft leap frogs the hood of a car to evade the bouncers. Gillmore tells 10 Sports the police broke up the altercation, no arrests were made and no charges were filed.

Gillmore contests the NFL Securities did not address the brawl with Evans or his representation prior to the draft. At this time Evans has not heard from the league regarding any violations of conduct policy.

As for the Buccaneers, the team is en route to Buffalo for its preseason game against the Bills on Saturday. The team has yet to reply to 10 Sports inquiry on if they knew about the altercation prior to the draft. Evans is expected to play tomorrow, just two days removed from his 21st birthday.

Gillmore told 10 Sports he does not believe Evans was partying with his former Texas A&M roommate and Heisman Trophy winner of Johnny Manziel on the night of the altercation.
