The New Orleans Saints have cut offensive guard Jahri Evans, reports ESPN's Field Yates. The move comes days before Evans was set to have $3 million fully guaranteed on Wednesday.
Evans took a paycut last season, but the Saints' tight cap situation resulted in the team cutting the guard. Evans didn't think he would be cut this offseason.
“Listen, me and Coach Payton talked this offseason,” Evans said near the end of the season. “And I don’t think I’m going anywhere. Trust me, I doubt if that happens."
Evans is six-time pro bowl guard, and he'll likely find a new team this offseason. As for the Saints, they'll need to find a replacement for Evans.
In addition to Evans, the team also cut LBs Ramon Humber and David Hawthorne.Back to the New Orleans Saints Newsfeed
