It has been vogue in the last few days to see newly signed wide receiver Lee Evans as a “safe” free agent signing, and that’s fine. Because he signed a one-year deal, he indeed is a safe acquisition in that if he doesn’t work out, the move won’t hurt the Jaguars. But watching Evans in mini-camp you get the idea it’s wrong to pigeon-hole him into an “aging-veteran” role. Evans this week made some moves on intermediate routes – and some catches after getting open – that looked like the moves and catches of a player who can contribute. Can Evans still be a 1,000-yard, game-breaking guy? Time will tell, but early on, he absolutely looked like a player who can be a consistent, reliable, productive player at a position that didn’t have that a year ago.
