LEE EVANS RUMORS & GOSSIP
While Lee Evans awaits another chance in the NFL, he'll be rooting for the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday's AFC championship rematch with New England.

Last week, wide receiver Lee Evans practiced Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but the Baltimore Ravens decided against activating him for last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Baltimore Ravens veteran wide receiver Lee Evans returned to practice Wednesday afternoon after missing the past six games with a high ankle sprain.
