Cowboys waive suspended wideout Shaquelle Evans

Wide receiver Shaquelle Evans will serve a four-game suspension to start the 2017 season, but he won’t have a chance to show the Cowboys he’s worth keeping around until he’s eligible to play.

The Cowboys announced Thursday that they have waived Evans off of their 90-man roster. The league announced Evans was suspended for violating the substance-abuse policy last Friday.

Evans was drafted by the Jets in the fourth round of the 2014 draft, but spent his rookie year on injured reserve and was waived coming out of the preseason in 2015. He spent time on the Jaguars and Patriots practice squads before landing with the Cowboys and has never seen any regular season action.

The Cowboys already had enough space on their roster to fit in all of their draft picks, but Evans’ departure opens up a spot they can fill with an undrafted free agent when that signing frenzy takes place after the end of the seventh round on Saturday.

    In 2 years as GM of the Jets, John Idzik Jr.may have had some of the worst Drafts in NFL history. Let alone NY Jets history.

    Its one thing if you make a draft pick of a player that doesn’t become a star, then a decent player, then a role player, then I guess gets cut.

    Most of Idzik’s picks are not just gone from the Jets, most are totally out of the NFL.

    And the last few picks–Calvin Pryor won’t be a Jet Much longer…although same could be said for Sheldon Richardson.

    Amazing he still has an NFL job. I guess he gets the coffee for Coughlin now?

    Weed or no, if he was any good, Jerrah would have kept him.
