Lee Evans will land with the Jaguars

Receiver Lee Evans, a former No. 1 wideout in Buffalo who is at least for now best known for failing to make what would have been an AFC title-winning touchdown reception in January, will continue his career in Jacksonville.
Evans will sign with the Jaguars on Monday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
In Jacksonville, Evans joins a depth chart that includes Laurent Robinson, Mike Thomas, Brian Robiskie, and Taylor Price.
Traded last August to Baltimore for a fourth-round pick, Evans appeared in a career-low nine regular-season games, due to a chronic foot/ankle problem. The eighth-year veteran finished with four catches for 74 yards, 33 catches fewer than his previous low-water mark.
Evans nearly matched that total in two 2011 playoff games, with 69 yards on four receptions.
But it was the one that got away that will haunt him as much if not more than Billy Cundiff’s shanks-for-nuttin‘ that would have forced overtime against the Patriots in Foxboro. If Evans had secured the ball and/or gotten his second foot down more quickly, the Ravens would have faced the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.
