Jacksonville Jaguars Sign Lee Evans, The One Injured Wide Receiver The Rams Weren't In On

I have to admit I'm a little disappointed: The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed an injury-prone wide receiver that the St. Louis Rams didn't even pretend to be interested in. Lee Evans is headed their way, after a season in which he barely existed for the Baltimore Ravens except to crush their hopes during the AFC Championship.

Evans was a great, underappreciated wide receiver at his best... which means I'm stunned that the Rams didn't give him a look, after being so in on Steve Smith and continuing to employ Danario Alexander. He was so their type! Evans is a poor bet to contribute next year, but the Jaguars also signed Laurent Robinson, so they're used to that kind of thing.

(Disclaimer: Through some twist of fate and will I have drafted Lee Evans in seemingly every fantasy draft I've taken part in since he was drafted. He's become a kind of team mascot, and if he were on the Rams it would justify my drafting him in the Mr. Irrelevant position, for the 500th year in a row. So I feel bad for missing out on that. I mean, come on, guys, you can throw Mike Sims-Walker a bone but not Lee Evans?)
