  • Cowboys' Rashaan Evans: Signed to active roster

    The Cowboys signed Evans to their active roster from their practice squad Saturday.

    Dallas had elevated Evans from the practice squad each of the previous three weeks, so it was necessary for the team to sign him to the active roster in order for him to suit up Week 11. Evans played on a season-high 46 percent of the Cowboys' defensive snaps last Sunday against the Giants, tallying two assisted tackles. His role as a depth linebacker is especially important with the news that Leighton Vander Esch (neck) won't return this season.

  • Cowboys' Rashaan Evans: Heads to active roster

    The Cowboys elevated Evans to the active roster Saturday.

    Evans joined the Cowboys' practice squad Oct. 12 after being granted his release from the Eagles' taxi squad Sept. 16. He registered 159 tackles last season for the Falcons while playing in all 17 games and will provide crucial depth at linebacker with Leighton Vander Esch (neck) on injured reserve.

  • Rashaan Evans: Signs with Dallas

    Evans signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Thursday, Nick Harris of the team's official site reports.

    The 2018 first-round pick recorded 159 tackles, including two sacks, four passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble with the Falcons last season, and he could see action for the Cowboys soon due to injuries to starters Leighton Vander Esch (neck) and Damone Clark (shoulder). Evans requested his release from the Eagles' practice squad in September to consider other opportunities, and it appears he'll soon have one in Dallas.

  • Rashaan Evans: Cut from practice squad

    Evans was released from the Eagles' practice squad Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Evans requested his release, as there are apparently several other opportunities that he is considering. The 2018 first-round pick accumulated 159 tackles across 17 games for the Falcons last season, but he was surprisingly absent from training camps across the league in August.

  • Rashaan Evans: Catches onto practice squad

    Evans was signed to the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday.

    The move corresponds to the Eagles signing linebacker Nicholas Morrow to the active roster and placing Nakobe Dean on injured reserve. After posting a career-high 159 tackles in 17 games for the Falcons in 2022, Evans was a surprise absence from training camps across the league. The 2018 first-round pick will look to get quickly acclimated to the Eagles' defense in the hopes of being called up to the active roster.

  • Falcons' Rashaan Evans: Career-high 160 tackles in 2022

    Evans recorded 160 tackles (86 solo), four pass defenses, two sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

    Evans appeared in all 17 games and posted a career-high 160 tackles during his first season with Atlanta. He had a stretch from Weeks 3 through 15 during which he recorded at least 10 tackles in 10 of 12 games, including a 15-stop performance against Pittsburgh in Week 13. Evans' contract was for only one season, so he'll likely test free agency after his stellar campaign, though a return to Atlanta could be in the cards if the Falcons are willing to offer the 2018 first-round pick a multi-year deal.

  • Falcons' Rashaan Evans: Ties season low with six stops

    Evans recorded six tackles (two solo) during Saturday's 17-9 loss to Baltimore.

    Evans tied his season low with six stops and snapped a six-game double-digit tackle streak. Despite finishing second on the team in tackles behind Richie Grant, Evans' performance Saturday was certainly disappointing given his recent string of success. In his first season with Atlanta, Evans has totaled a career-high 151 tackles, so he'll look to get back on track in Week 17 against the Cardinals.

    Evans recorded 10 tackles (five solo) and one sack during Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Saints.

    Evans notched his sixth consecutive double-digit tackle performance and recorded his first sack since Week 8. Across his first 14 appearances with Atlanta, the 2018 first-round pick has totaled 145 tackles, two sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble while playing nearly every defensive snap.

  • Falcons' Rashaan Evans: Season-high 15 tackles in loss

    Evans recorded 15 tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 19-16 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Evans set a season high with 15 tackles, marking his fifth straight game with double-digit stops and his ninth overall. The fifth-year linebacker has already set a new career high with 135 stops across his first 13 appearances with the Falcons. Evans will be a top IDP option when Atlanta returns to action following its Week 14 bye.
