Lee Evans has been the one constant on the Bills’ offense since 2004, playing in every game of his seven-year career, starting all but seven of them.
It would be difficult to blame Evans for any frustration he might have with the ever-changing landscape of the Bills’ offense, having caught touchdowns from seven different passers in his career, but Evans said he has confidence in the team’s most recent quarterback change, with Ryan Fitzpatrick taking over for Trent Edwards Sunday at New England.
“With Fitz or Trent, you know both of those quarterbacks are going to compete hard and do all they can to win,” Evans said. “Fitz just has that different demeanor about him than Trent does. I think we have a very good rapport. We know who each other are and it’s just about making plays and having the opportunity to make plays.”
Evans – who caught four of his seven touchdowns and 341 of his 612 yards from Fitzpatrick last year – said Fitzpatrick is not afraid to take risks; fitting throws in to tight coverage and changing plays at the line, which he did last year on a franchise-record 98-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens in Jacksonville.
It could be good news for Evans owners, but we'll have to see some production first before throwing him in your lineup. There's always a need for WR and if he's on your waiver wire, keep him in mind.
