NFL Trade Rumors: Cardinals' Interest in Lee Evans Should Force Bills to Wake Up
The Buffalo Bills must know something we don't about their wide receiving unit.
Breakout star Stevie Johnson is a talented weapon, but his presence isn't enough for the Bills to even consider trading away their most experienced veteran, Lee Evans.
And that is apparently what they're considering, trading away the eight-year man from Wisconsin despite a plethora of inexperienced receivers behind him on the depth chart.
Their is interest out there, as there should be, but the Bills to open their eyes and realize they're making a huge mistake.
The Arizona Cardinals are "showing interest" in acquiring wide receiver Lee Evans from the Buffalo Bills.
Evans may have turned in the worst season of his career to date a year ago, but he's always a threat to score and can get up the field in a hurry.
There is even more to it as well, at least in terms of finances, and the Bills have Evans at a base salary just over $3 million for each of the two seasons remaining on his contract. He may not be a top flight receiver, but that is a mighty fair deal for a player of Evans' caliber.
The Cardinals' interest should speak volumes about why the Bills need Evans even more.
Arizona is starting a new era in the desert with Kevin Kolb under center, and the Bills have effectively hitched their wagon to Ryan Fitzpatrick for at least one more season rather than getting a franchise quarterback in the draft.
Sending away Evans at this juncture makes no sense, not to a team that thinks they already have a starting quarterback, and his value - not just financially - is more important to Buffalo than they seem to realize.
