Evans released by Jaguars

Lee Evans, whowill always be remembered in Baltimore for the catch he didn't make, wasreleased by the Jackonsville Jaguars on Sunday in what could be a career-endingmove.Evans, 31, signeda one-year deal with the Jaguars in April that included a 250,000 signingbonus. In Jacksonville, Evans was reunited with coach Mike Mularkey, who washis coach in Buffalo after the Bills made Evans a first-round draft pick in2004. It was thoughtEvans, who has over 6,000 career receiving yards in an eight-year NFL career, could help revive aJaguars offense that ranked last in the league last season with 156.9 passingyards a game. However, the Jaguars drafted receiver Justin Blackmon with thefifth overall pick, and the Jaguars seem content to go with receivers otherthan Evans. He did not play in the Jaguars' preseason game against the New YorkGiants on Saturday night. There is somespeculation that Evans was waived early to give him a chance to catch on withanother team. Evans playedseven seasons in Buffalo and twice had more than 1,000 receiving yards in aseason with the Bills. The Ravens traded a fourth-round draft pick to the Billsfor Evans, who was expected to become the Ravens No. 3 receiver and primarydeep threat last season. It never worked out that way. Botheredby an ankle injury, Evans missed nearly half the season and finished the season withfour catches for 74 yards. But he'll be remembered most for the catch he didn'tmake, as he failed to hang on to a throw from Joe Flacco in the end zone in thefinal minute of the AFC Championship game that could have sent the Ravens tothe Super Bowl.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.
