JAHRI EVANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The 10 best veterans still lingering on the free-agent market

At this point in the offseason, unless something crazy happens (like a team rescinding a franchise tag), NFL teams are unlikely to pick up productive starters on the open market. The name of the game in the NFL is depth, though, and there’s no question there are veterans floating around out there that could be of valuable service to a team. Many teams will likely get through mini...

Jahri Evans: a legend to remember

Imagine for a moment that you are in a small space with a very large and very angry man. Imagine that this man stands 6’5″ and weighs 315 pounds and the only thing on his mind is causing you as much pain as humanely possible. You would likely panic and run for your life, I know I would, but while most of us would run for the hills when faced with such a situation that has never...

Is Jahri Evans a top 5 all time Saint?

It’s always sad to part ways with the all time greats, and Jahri Evans is certainly that. The man deserves his due more than I could ever give him justice with this post. When I think of the best draft class in Saints history, 2006, which included Marques Colston, Reggie Bush, Zach Strief, Roman Harper etc… guys that combined were the stepping stone class to a Super Bowl title...

5 Descending Players: #3 Jahri Evans

For this series I’ll be listing 5 players on the Saints roster that are on the downward slope of their careers. This is not to say that they are no longer assets to the team, or that they won’t contribute significantly this year. Rather these players are past their prime and successors will need to be addressed after the season if they’re not already in house. I’ll be ranking...

Saints add CB Kyle Wilson and extend Jahri Evans

The contract of Jahri Evans is resolved. That’s the real big news. The signing of Kyle Wilson is “meh”, but the Saints needed a vet to compete in camp with the loss of Patrick Robinson, so it’s good to have another corner in the mix. Saints extend contract of Jahri Evans one year and sign CB Kyle Wilson to a one-year contract. — Greg Bensel (@GregBensel) April 1, 2015

Saints reporter flashes Pulitzer after Jahri Evans rips him

As a Saints fan, it’s been a bit of a tumultuous season.  A 2-3 record heading into the bye week is a disappointment heading into the bye week for a team that very clearly had Super Bowl aspirations.  The losses have been heartbreaking (two on the last play and one SNF blowout in Dallas) and the wins haven’t been all that impressive.  That includes an overtime home victory...

New Orleans Saints beat reporter Larry Holder, who has written for The Times-Picayune since 2012, wrote a piece earlier this week that included some criticism of All-Pro offensive guard Jahri Evans.

New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans named top-5 in the NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...
