There was some excitement when the Jags brought in Lee Evans to play for them this offseason. It meant a strong veteran presence was finally in the mix and could provide leadership and guidance to the young receivers already on the roster. But due to declining production and a failure to show he can still keep up with the young guys, the Jaguars have waived Evans on Sunday.
Soem were wondering why he didn’t play on Friday against the Giants. Well we just got our reason.
This is an indication that the team is satisfied with the current group of receivers. Evans wasn’t great for the Ravens last year (including the AFC Championship game-winning drop) and may be forced into retirement unless a starved team takes a swing at him.
Also waived today was wide receiver Taylor Price.
