  Jaguars | Coach explains Lee Evans move    Sun Aug 12, 09:24 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday, Aug. 12, that WR Lee Evans was released because he is no longer the same player as earlier in his career. He said Evans wasn't able to run routes the way he did in his prime. 'He's just struggling getting in and out of breaks and I think he felt the same way,' Mularkey said.

Footballguys view: Evans is going to have a difficult time catching on with another team if the WR poor Jaguars let him go. He's not the same player he used to be and this may be the end of his pro career.

  Jaguars | Lee Evans, Cecil Shorts have done well at times    Sun Jun 17, 08:37 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Lee Evans and Cecil Shorts have had 'their moments' at times during offseason workouts, according to general manager Gene Smith. At this point, it appears that Evans and Shorts are fighting for the No. 4 receiver job. Shorts also has experience as a punt returner, which might have help make the roster if he ends up on the bubble.

Footballguys view: Evans still has the speed to be an effective downfield target and will help stretch the field. Shorts is best utilized on short and intermediate routes, but also has decent moves in the open field.

  Jaguars | WR Thomas on the roster bubble?    Wed May 23, 03:18 PM

Mark Long, from the Associated Press, reports via Twitter that the more he watches Jaguars practice the more he feels WR Mike Thomas may not make the final roster.

Footballguys view: The Jags added a ton of weapons this offseason. In free agency they added both Laurent Robinson and Lee Evans. In the first-round of the 2012 NFL Draft they selected star WR Justin Blackmon. His roster spot may be saved because of his salary. His full 2012 salary is guaranteed, along with $1MM of his 2013 salary.

  Jaguars | Veteran receivers can help Justin Blackmon adjust    Fri Apr 27, 09:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert said throwing to elite receivers is easy because of their talent level, which is one of the reasons he is excited the team selected rookie WR Justin Blackmon in the first round. Gabbert said he and Blackmon are the same age and went through the same situation, so it will be easy for them to relate to each other.

Footballguys view: Gabbert feels Blackmon will be aided in his transition to the NFL by the likes of veteran WRs Mike Thomas, Laurent Robinson and Lee Evans.

  Ravens | Anquan Boldin having surgery Thursday    Thu Dec 22, 02:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Anquan Boldin (knee) is undergoing surgery to fix a slight meniscus tear in his knee Thursday, Dec. 22. 'It flapped up on him, I think it was Tuesday night after the walk-through,' said head coach John Harbaugh. 'He's going to have to get it repaired. It's a two-week thing. He's seeing Dr. Andrew this afternoon. It's two weeks and he'll be back for the playoffs, whatever round we happen to play in. It will be a little bit tighter if we have to play in the first round.' WR Lee Evans will step into the starting lineup as a result.

Footballguys view: Boldin's injury will boost the fantasy stock of rookie WR Torrey Smith the most.

Baltimore Ravens WR Lee Evans (ankle) is completely healthy, and the team is incorporating more plays that will involve him in the offense.

Footballguys view: Boldin worked the middle of the field and got a few nice gains after the catch, but no Ravens offensive player was in for a big night against the stifling 49ers defense.
