Packers Sign Six Time Pro Bowl Guard Evans

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Packers may have found their replacement for T-J Lang when they signed six time Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans from New Orleans. The 33-year-old Evans signed a one year contract with Green Bay on Wednesday, after playing for eleven years with the Saints. New Orleans drafted Evans in the fourth round in 2006, and he left for Seattle last year but returned to the Saints after the Seahawks cut him at the end of their training camp. Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers recently figured that a combination of Kyle Murphy, Lucas Patrick, and Don Barclay could replace Lang — who signed with his home area Detroit Lions in March. After blocking for Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees, Evans says the idea of blocking for Rodgers appeals to him.
