Welcome, now lets hope he can unseat one of the current starting Guards whomever they are.

So is he supposed to play in a few days?
Don't see why not. He was in a training camp this year (Seattle) and knows the ins and outs of the system, minus whatever new we added in. A smart guy like Evans could pick up whatever new elements there are within a day or two.

I'd bet money Jahri starts game 1.

I really feel like his time as a starter is done but given our current options he's probably the best available to be a backup. Probably has a bit left in the tank and one cannot understate the importance of knowing the playbook. I also wonder how much gouge he has on the Seahawks for when we play them.

Bottom line, I expect we can get more marginal value out of him than Grayson so it's probably for the best right now.

Just because you'd rather another player doesn't mean that this is a bad move.

kline might not even be the answer, but i've watched evans play the last 3 years. he's worse than lelito.

it's a bad/depserate signing

Not the best solution but better than nothing. Evans is superior to Lelito. I really don't see how people see otherwise.

This is the JC Penny's of signings.

Interestingly enough, I've watched Saints game from the past three years as well. While Evans is not the All Pro level player that he once was, he's hardly a disaster.

I mean, I'm not in love with the signing, but I really find it hard to criticize it on a rational basis.
