JAHRI EVANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans named top-5 in the NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Diamond found in the fourth round rough

The Saints have made a living scooping up untapped talent in the middle-to-late rounds of drafts and turning them into all pros, especially along the offensive line. In 2006, the Saints had just recruited Drew Brees to take his talents to the Big Easy. After making such a splash in the free agent market, the front office needed to ensure that Brees had an offensive line capable of...

Need at center dependent upon The Bridge

The Saints saw solid production from their offensive line in 2013, especially from the three hogs in the middle. Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs were rewarded for their stellar play with Pro Bowl selections, while the most underrated center (perhaps even offensive lineman) in the game continued to turn in excellent performance after excellent performance. Fans of the Saints know just...

Center and guard prospects not on Saints’ radar

Few teams are in a position where they can essentially eliminate one position from their draft board altogether, but that’s exactly where the Saints find themselves when it comes to interior lineman. New Orleans is home to (potentially) the best duo of guards in the game in Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. Both were pro bowlers in 2013, and neither is in play for free agency this year...

Saints Nation: Interior Depth An Issue for Saints

We saw how much having Jahri Evans healthy meant to this team last week as undrafted rookie Tim Lelito started his first game and struggled mightily going up against Darnell Dockett. Evans was active and dressed in that game, mind you, because Tim Lelito is their only backup interior lineman. The Saints also have Bryce Harris and Terron Armstead as reserve linemen, but both are tackles...

Saints Nation: Thomas Morstead and Jahri Evans to Pro Bowl

Pro Bowl rosters were announced and only two Saints players made it to the starting roster this year. Guard Jahri Evans is headed to the game for the fourth year in a row, and punter Thomas Morstead who is one game away from breaking the all time net yards average record for a season is a first timer. While both are very much deserved, Evans' place amongst the elite group is...

Drew Brees & Jahri Evans Key To Fixing Saints Salary Cap Mess?

Brian McIntyre of Yahoo! Sports writes that the Saints could look to restructuring the contracts of QB Drew Brees and G Jahri Evans in order to free up some much needed cap space. We wrote earlier in the week that the Saints could be forced to part ways with LB Jonathan Vilma and DE Will Smith because of the salaries and the that they’re projected to be $16 million...

Saints looking to win out, playoffs or not

Saints guard Jahri Evans acknowledges a measure of regret that it took so long - probably too long - for New Orleans to resemble the playoff contender it had been the previous three seasons. Evans says the Saints' 41-0 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday offered a glimpse of how New Orleans should have played earlier this season. Still, Evans and his teammates say winning out...

Q&A with Saints guard Jahri Evans

Of all the NFL's elite players, few have traveled a more curious path than New Orleans Saints right guard Jahri Evans. He attended a Division II program -- Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania -- on an academic scholarship. He never played organized football until reaching high school. Even then, Evans was forced to miss his senior season because of an injury. And now? Evans...

Saints OL Jahri Evans Says Ndamukong Suh is Dirty After the Whistle

Saints guard Jahri Evans is a Pro Bowl lineman preparing for his team’s Wild Card playoff game against the Lions Saturday. He has one of his toughest assignments of the season — protecting Drew Brees from Detroit’s rowdy defensive line led by Ndamukong Suh. Though Evans respects Suh, he recognizes the Lions lineman is dirty. “I think some things he does is dirty, after the...
