  • Eagles' Justin Evans: Signs with Philadelphia

    Evans signed with the Eagles on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Evans will help fill the hole left at safety after C.J. Gardner-Johnson left to sign with the Lions. The 27-year-old played in 15 games for the Saints last year, making four starts and registering a career-low 29 tackles (17 solo). The 2017 second-round pick may compete with Reed Blankenship for playing time and potentially a starting spot at free safety.

  • Saints' Justin Evans: Injures shoulder Saturday

    Evans (shoulder) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Browns, Katherine Terrell of reports.

    Evans logged two tackles before exiting at some point in the second half. With starting strong safety Marcus Maye (shoulder) already inactive Saturday, the Saints' secondary will be left extra short-handed for the time being.

  • Saints' Justin Evans: Gets chance in New Orleans

    Evans (foot) signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Evans sat out the entire 2021 season while recovering from foot surgery, and he hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2018. The 2017 second-round pick will look to prove he can stay healthy in New Orleans.

  • Justin Evans: Cut by Bucs

    Evans (foot) was waived from the PUP list due to a failed physical Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 25-year-old has been on the PUP list since late July due to foot surgery, and he won't be returning for the Buccaneers this season. It's unclear where Evans currently stands in his recovery.

  • Buccaneers' Justin Evans: Eyeing November return

    Evans (foot) was placed on the reserve/PUP list Saturday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Evans has struggled to get healthy over the past two seasons, as his 2018 season ended with a foot injury and his 2019 campaign never started due to an Achilles injury. He's dealing with his 2018 foot injury again, however, and he'll need to wait until at least November to return to the lineup. Even when he's healthy, the 2017 second-round pick will likely be eased back into action, as it'll be his first time in a game in nearly two years. Antoine Winfield and Jordan Whitehead are expected to be the Buccaneers' starting safeties this season.

  • Buccaneers' Justin Evans: Lands on PUP list

    The Bucs placed Evans (foot) on the PUP list Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The 2017 second-round pick has dealt with a slew of lower-body injuries since midway through the 2018 campaign, with the most recent issue requiring foot/ankle surgery at some point last November or December. The team hoped to have him back for the start of training camp, but it appears he isn't quite ready. Jordan Whitehead and rookie second-round pick Antoine Winfield are the probable starting safeties in Tampa Bay, though Evans, Mike Edwards and Andrew Adams all are capable of making it a competition.

  • Buccaneers' Justin Evans: Likely for PUP list

    Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that Evans (ankle/foot) is expected to be placed on the active/PUP list, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Arians said back in February that he had optimism for Evans to be cleared by June, but it looks as though he won't be ready for training camp. If the 2017 second-round pick were to shift to the reserve/PUP list to kick off the 2020 campaign, he would be required to miss the first six weeks of the season.
