Saints legend Jahri Evans signs with Green Bay Packers

Evans is a veteran guard than can fill a major need for the Packers.

The NFL rumors and reports keep coming of the Green Bay Packers' draft visits, and The Cetureon have found out of a third quarterback who has been in Wisconsin recently.

Evans comes to Green Bay after spending 11 seasons with the New Orleans Saints.

Evans, 34, started all 16 games in 2016.

One day before Thursday's first round, general manager Ted Thompson took a step toward replacing Pro Bowler T.J. Lang by signing former Pro Bowler and All-Pro Jahri Evans. His last Pro Bowl came in 2014.

Details about Evans' new deal have not yet been disclosed, though it will likely be a one-year deal.

There will be no great mystery surrounding the Green Bay Packers when the National Football League draft starts Thursday. "I like the guys that we have".




Though the Packers signed ninth-year pro Ricky Jean Francois, formerly of the Washington Redskins, they still may want some more beef along the line.

While Evans considered his future, the Saints signed Larry Warford away from Detroit.

As Alabama's Jonathan Allen, an All-American, SEC defensive player of the year and victor of three major individual trophies, notes: "Don't focus on who might pick you".

"Yeah, we'll miss T.J.", McCarthy lamented.

Gunter, another undrafted find from Miami, has followed in Shields' footsteps, starting 15 regular-season games in 2016 to lead all Green Bay cornerbacks with 54 tackles, 12 deflections and two forced fumbles.

The Ohio State tandem of Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley will be long gone by the time the Packers pick 29th in the first round, but everyone else could be in play for Green Bay.
