Redskins retain free agent end Evans

By Len Pasquarelli


Unrestricted free agent Demetric Evans, a key component in the Washington Redskins' defensive line rotation, has reached an agreement to return to the team. Neither the terms nor the financial details of the contract Evans is expected to sign next week were available.

Evans, 26, had drawn interest from several teams in the first month of free agency and had visited with officials from the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints.

A high-energy defender who gets the most out of his playing time, Evans played primarily at end in 2005, but also logged some snaps at tackle. Appearing in all 16 games, with three starts, Evans had career bests in tackles (32) and sacks (three). He also added a sack in the playoffs.

For his career, Evans has appeared in 48 games and has 105 tackles, 6½ sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and three pass deflections. The four-year veteran has a strong work ethic and his ability to play every spot on the defensive line makes him a valuable contributor.

Man, have I been waiting to hear this! I think this is GREAT news, and he will be a key role player for us next year. He really seemed to respond well when inserted this year. A guy like him gives us great flexibility with our D-line rotations.

Seems like this would be our last move until the draft too, unless something happens with Fletcher or another 3rd CB.

Welcome back, Demetric!

this is a major event for the skins. Evans is a Gibbs/Williams type player who plays DE/Dt has gotten better and better and is still very young. our old d-line now has some young studs in the mix which we needed. he gives us some speed and shows signs of becoming a very good pass rusher. the more he has played the better he has played.

A total absence of anti-Redskin shots noted.

This WAS the least biased, dare I say possitively connotated, articel he has written since Gibbs has returned. I had to read lenny's name twice to take it in. :silly:
