Sounding More and More Like Lee Evans is Done in Buffalo

According to buffalobills.com, Bills coach Chan Gailey would not rule out the offseason release of veteran wide receiver Lee Evans.

“Well I doubt it,” said Gailey. ”But I’m not gonna say anything’s impossible. But when you look at it, to me that group that you mentioned, including Lee Evans, gives us a quality receiving corps going into the season. It’s going to be hard for, if all those guys stay healthy and all of them do what we expect them to do the advantage is they can’t lock in on any one guy. “The disadvantage is nobody’s going to have any great stats because the ball’s going to be spread around. That’s what happened. They go over and double cover Lee the first half of the season so the other side gets all the catches. That’s kind of what happened. I don’t know how it’s going to work out next year. I just know it’s a much better position we’re walking into this year than we were walking into last year ona lot of spots on the offensive side of the ball.”

Wide receiver has become the deepest position on the Bills’ roster. Evans had his worst year statistically before going on injured reserve with an ankle injury and he was surpassed in 2010 as the Bills No.1 receiver by Steve Johnson. Evans turns 30 in March and he is due a $1 million roster bonus.
