Roscoe Parrish injures leg; Lee Evans staying put?


Roscoe Parrish of the Buffalo Bills injured his leg in practice Wednesday night and is expected to miss significant practice time.  For the Ravens fans hoping the Bills would be willing to shop Lee Evans this could deter the Bills from making a trade.

If Roscoe Parrish is out for extended time the Bills need a receiver to take his place and why not replace him with a receiver you already have on the team?  I’m not sure if the Ravens are or were interested at all in trading for Evans but this makes any move by the Bills at this point less likely.  We will have to wait and see what happens as the injury could be far less extreme than originally thought, or it could be worse.

Now that Lee Evans is likely off the trading block for the time being who would you like to see the Ravens go after?  Leave your comments below!

    From everything that was being said around Baltimore, they weren’t interested in dealing for Evans as it was. They passed on Cotchery, and were hoping Buffalo cut Evans loose instead of having to give something up for him. I don’t know how sold the Ravens coaching staff is on Smith and Dodd, but one would have to think there is a market for Evans somewhere, possibly Arizona.

    Just because Parrish is hurt, doesn’t mean Buffalo doesn’t pull the trigger on a deal if the return is decent. They have a lot of decent young receivers, and Evans was supplanted by Steve Johnson as the number one WR last season anyway. David Nelson can fill in for Parrish, and with guys like Buster Davis, Naaman Roosevelt and even Brad Smith, it’s not like there is no one to catch passes and run routes if Evans is dealt.

    @ckubala I agree they have other receivers to catch passes but Evans has proven reliable. Obviously, I was wrong as the apparent asking price is now a 3rd rounder for Evans. I doubt they will get that high of a pick for him.

    @MitchTolandJr. 37 catches a year ago didn’t show a lot of reliability. Evans is more of a home run type of receiver than a guy who will go across the middle and make those catches on third down you need to move the sticks.

    As it stands, after talking about backing off, Baltimore ended up pulling the trigger on the deal to get him. Makes me wonder if Harbaugh was unhappy with the performance of Smith and Doss in last night’s game, which precipitated the move.

    I for one, am a bit surprised that the Cardinals were not more aggressive in making a move for Evans. They need someone to take the heat off Fitzgerald.
