During the last three seasons, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Lee Evans has had to deal with almost constant double teams. That should change in 2009, with a surprise addition to the passing game.
The Bills shocked the league months ago by signing Terrell Owens to a one-year, $6.5 million contract, after Dallas waived the controversial wideout.
“The reduced attention should allow (Evans) to produce more big plays and get into the end zone more than three times,” said Jason Fritz of Buffalo Rumblings. (http://www.buffalorumblings.com)
“Evans is one of the best deep threats in the league, so seeing more single coverage should free him for some more of the big plays we’ve grown accustomed to seeing out of him. I don’t expect him to put up huge numbers, simply because ‘T.O.’ will get his, but 1,000 yards and six to eight touchdowns would be a nice complement to Owens’ production.”
Evans has been the main receiving threat in Buffalo since 2006, when Eric Moulds was released after refusing to take a pay cut. As the No. 1 receiver, his yards-per-catch average was consistent, between 15.4 and 16.1, but his week-to-week production was spotty.
