Jaguars Release Lee Evans

June 12, 2012; Jacksonville FL, USA; Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Lee Evans (83) runs during minicamp at Florida Blue Health

It appears a former Bills first round pick didn’t show enough to even make it through the entire preseason. Today the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they had waived Lee Evans after signing him this off-season. Evans, a first round pick in 2004, played in Baltimore last season. He had only 4 catches for 74 yards in his first season away from Buffalo. His best season came in 2004 when he caught 82 passes for 1,292 yards.

Many questioned the Bills trading Evans, but it appears that the loss for the Bills was quite minimal. It is strange to see such a huge drop off however. Even though his stats were digressing, he did have 37 catches for 578 yards his last year in Buffalo. Now he is once again teamless after being waived for the second time in a year.

In the end Lee Evans was unable to bring anything to the Jaguars wide receiver core like they had hoped, and both sides will now move ahead.

The Bills are lacking when it comes to a second wide receiver, but I can’t see Evans returning to the Bills. Even though there is some familiarity I believe the Bills made it clear that this front office is not interested in Evans’ services and felt the team was better in his absence. Even though it may seem slightly appealing, I wouldn’t expect to see Evans in the blue and red again in his career.
