Newsome, Harbaugh on WR Lee Evans
By James Walker
The Baltimore Ravens made a significant trade Friday to acquire receiver Lee Evans from the Buffalo Bills. Baltimore gave up a fourth-round pick in 2012.
Here is what the Ravens' general manager and head coach said about Evans:
Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome
"Our fans will remember him from his outstanding game (six catches, 105 yards, three touchdowns) against us last season. He's a quality veteran receiver who stretches the field and gives us a significant downfield presence. He's the type of person you want on your team. He brings leadership and maturity to the locker room."
Ravens coach John Harbaugh
"We're excited about getting Lee Evans. He's a proven player in this league and a quality person who will fit in well on our team. We’re all looking forward to going to work with him."
