Evans rumors persist

Even though Bills GM Buddy Nix maintains that all of the rumor and speculation about a possible trade involving Lee Evans is just that… rumor and speculation.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter took a swing with all of the others that have been speculating on Evans being moved.

AdamSchefter Buffalo is now open to trading WR Lee Evans and some believe the Bills former 1st-rd pick is expected to be dealt within the next 48 hours.
 
Truthfully this isn’t any new news on the subject because Thursday on Sirius NFL Radio Nix said no one on the roster is untouchable. Here is his direct quote.
“Nothing has changed with Lee (Evans).  He’s still a Bill,” said Nix. “We expect him to play and do well. We are counting on him.  I would think that something would be wrong if teams were not interested in Lee Evans.  Everybody can count and see that we have a lot of young receivers and I think they speculate a lot, but as far as I’m concerned and as far as I know a speculation is all it is.

“I will say this; we’re always looking to improve and upgrade our team, whatever it takes. Competition is what this is all about and I don’t think anybody is immune to discussions and certainly nobody is immune to being replaced, including me.  We’ll do the best we can to make our team better.”
