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.
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 74 yards on four receptions, 33 catches fewer than his previous low-water mark.
Evans nearly matched his regular-season total in two 2011 playoff games, with 69 yards on four catches.
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.
