Tom Brady is taking part in his first training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but there should be no questions about his chemistry with his new team. 

Receiver Mike Evans provided lots of praise for the veteran quarterback during Tuesday's press conference, via TMZ Sports:

"He's the GOAT on and off the field. It's crazy. He's a superstar. The most accomplished player in our game in history. And he's just like everybody else. He just works extremely hard. He's always taking care of his body. He loves his family. He loves family time. And, he's just cool. He's a real down-to-earth guy. And, he's already up there as one of my favorite teammates."

Brady is already developing quality chemistry with Evans on the field as well:

Here's a look at Tom Brady today. Team periods weren't allowed to be videotaped, but you can still see the growing chemistry with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Justin Watson and O.J. Howard, along with go-to target Rob Gronkowski https://t.co/lPtN5qwwg5

Evans has been productive throughout his career with at least 1,000 yards in each of his six years in the NFL. He has three Pro Bowl selections despite catching passes from inconsistent quarterbacks like Jameis Winston, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh McCown.

The upgrade to Brady under center is clearly sitting well with Evans.
