The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived wide receivers Lee Evans and Taylor Price, according to a tweet by Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. The team signed Evans to a one-year deal this past April, and despite suiting up for this past Friday’s preseason game against the New York Giants, Evans didn’t play a down, and won’t in north Florida this season. The team has also parted ways with Taylor Price, who was claimed off of waivers from the New England Patriots during the 2011 regular season.
Lee Evans had previously played for new Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey in Buffalo, and was Mularkey’s first draft choice, when Evans was selected 13th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft. Evans would play in western New York from 2004 to 2010, before being traded to the Baltimore Ravens prior to the start of the 2011 season.
