The Jaguars signed Evans as an undrafted free agent out of UCF last year. He did not appear in a game and was on the team’s practice squad through the rest of the season.

Evans will join linebacker group led by Bobby Wagner, as K.J. Wright remains a free agent and on the open market.

Are the Seahawks sending a message to Wright about adding another linebacker to the team? That might be the case, but it's not set in stone just yet.

The Seahawks and Wright could get a deal done before the season starts here in a few months.
