Lee Evans not haunted by failed catch
By Jamison Hensley
Nearly every Ravens player has talked this week about hoping to play the AFC Championship Game at New England so the team could redeem itself from last year's loss. But not every player will have that shot at a second chance.
Former Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans explains how he's dealt with the failed catch in the end zone 12 months ago that cost the Ravens a trip to the Super Bowl. But moving on for Evans didn't mean moving away.
Evans, who was cut by the Ravens in March, still lives in Baltimore and has a photo of the worst moment of his football career on his wall.
"I do think about it," Evans says. "I don't think about it in a negative way, though. Right after the play, I went to the [PR] guy and basically asked him to get me a picture of it. Give me a picture of that moment, so I have it. I wanted it as a constant reminder to keep pushing, to keep going.
"I look at that picture, and basically I ask myself, 'Do I want another opportunity to do that again?'"
