UPDATE 01/09/2015: Mike Evans is off the market folks. Actually so is Mike Evans’ girlfriend turned finance Ashli Dotson.
After an amazing rookie campaign, despite a less than amazing quarterback delivering him the ball, Evans dropped to one knee and proposed to Ashli right around her 21st birthday. According to TMZ, Evans slid a Tiffany Soleste ring onto her finger, with “a cushion modified brilliant diamond encircled by a double row of bead-set diamonds.”
Congratulations to the couple, and also to Mike who should definitely have a better QB throwing the ball in Tampa Bay next season.
By now, many of us have seen the rough footage of Mike Evans fight outside a club in the months leading up to the 2014 NFL draft. When reading up on the details to the fight, TMZ put Mike Evans’ girlfriend Ashli Dotson right in the middle of their investigative efforts, when it came to the night in question.

The person who shot the video told TMZ the fight went down on a weekend in August, but Mike’s agent told the site that the fight took place in March, before the NFL draft.
The Gossip site settled their internal confusion over the timing of the fight pointing back to an Instagram picture from Mike Evans’ girlfriend Ashli Dotson in March. In the photo, Ashley sent out a picture which shows the couple each wearing the same outfits from fight night. Not impossible they lined up outfits a second time,… but let’s be honest – he just signed in the NFL. He has new clothes (Oh and PS – Mike Evans turned 21 yesterday).
Ashli Dotson is a college student still living in College Station, attending Texas A&M. Originally from Houston, Ashley officially declared herself in a relationship with Mike as of February, 2014, though there are pictures of them before that date. Mike has a daughter MacKenzie from a prior relationship, whom he struggled to see regularly during his playing days at A&M, being two and a half hours away. No word on how difficult this will be 6+ hours away in Tampa Bay now. Hopefully, his girlfriend Ashli Dotson will be around to help provide some stability to the 21 year old. The video above shows a kid who still has some growing up to do.
No word on any disciplinary action from the NFL
