ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie Mike Evans says he could have handled himself better in response to a video TMZ aired of the receiver being involved in a brawl at a Miami nightclub in March.

Evans called the fight "unfortunate," and added he nearly forgot about it until the video surfaced this week.

"I could've handled it better and I plan on handling it better in the future," he said following a 27-14 win over the Bills on Saturday. "I can't change it, but I put it behind me."

The video shows Evans exchanging punches with nightclub bouncers. The altercation happened before he was drafted seventh overall in May

Coach Lovie Smith is aware of what happened, and adds he's pleased with how Evans has handled himself since joining the team.
