Could veteran receivers call Jacksonville home?
The Florida Times-Union is reporting that Evans, a former first-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills, is in town today to visit with team officials.
There is no word yet when and if Naanee will be coming to town.
The Jaguars have already added one receiver to their corps with the signing of Laurent Robinson last week. The former Dallas Cowboys receiver signed a five-year, $32 million contract.
The free agency period started last week. Receivers who were left on the board before the signing period began were signed to new teams at a furious rate. The Jaguars, who were the worst receiving team in the league last season, needed to find new depth for Gabbert and the new coaching staff led by head coach Mike Mularkey.
Bringing in one or both of these receivers to the mix will help the team not only in depth but will also allow the team to concentrate on other positions in the upcoming draft in April. That being said, a young receiver will still be a target of team general manager Gene Smith and team scouts.
Indeed, Smith said last week that he would still like to add another receiver in free agency or the draft.
