Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans got married over the weekend and had a Harry Potter-themed groom cake. This four-tier cake featured each Hogwarts house - Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff - and was topped with Harry Potter’s owl Hedwig. As a side note, Evans’ former Texas A&M teammate, Johnny Manziel, was in attendance at the wedding. 

Jay Z stopped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facilities on Wednesday for a quick workout.  While he was there, he met with second-year players Jameis Winston and Donovan Smith.
