Could Lee Evans be an option?

Lee Evans' numbers may look pedestrian but he is an elite wide receiver.

Dan Pompei of the National Football Post wrote in his “Sunday Blitz” column that the Buffalo Bills could be looking to trade wide receiver Lee Evans since the team signed Brad Smith and already had Steve Johnson and Robert Parrish.

With so much talent in the receiving corp. it makes sense that the hapless Bills would look to trade their wide receiver with the hopes of getting some draft picks to improve the team.

At 30-years-old Evans still possesses elite speed and is still one of the top talented at the position, he’s just been one of those receivers stuck in a bad situation, with his quarterbacks being J.P. Losman, Trent Edwards, and Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Last season Evans was barely targeted but caught 37 passes for 578 yards and four touchdowns. For his career he has 377 receptions, 5,934 yards, and 43 touchdowns. In 2006 Evans experienced his best season when he caught 82 balls for 1,292 yards and eight touchdowns.

With a big need for a veteran wide receiver Evans could be a huge plus if the Bills are actually interested in trading him and the Ravens were interested in dealing for him. There is no word on what any sort of asking price may be but despite lackluster statistics in 2010 it has to be fairly high, but worth it.

Evans is still under contract for the next two years for $3.275 million base salary in addition to a $1.5 million roster bonus.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
