As was reported yesterday, the Jaguars have officially signed former Ravens WR Lee Evans according to the team website.
While Evans isn’t a top-of-the-line receiver, he’s yet another solid guy that certainly adds to the Jaguars less than stellar receiving unit. With this signing, the Jaguars are beginning to look like a very formidable team that could pose many problems for teams in 2012.
Prior to moving to the Ravens in 2011, Evans spent seven seasons with the Buffalo Bills, playing in all but three games for the Bills. Evans has just over 6,000 career receiving yards, and 43 touchdown receptions, all of which came in his time in Buffalo.
With Evans signing, the Jaguars receiving unit now includes Evans, Laurent Robinson, Mike Thomas, Cecil Shorts III, Chastin West, Jarett Dillard, Brian Robiskie, and Taylor Price. Needless to say, the Jaguars won’t be keeping all of those guys on the team. There’s plenty of speculation as to whether the Jaguars will maintain 5 receivers on their active roster, but that’ll all be determined much further down the road.
