Evans looking forward to facing Greer

Lee Evans faced Jabari Greer in practice every day for five seasons. Now facing him as an opponent in a regular season game has him very focused on Sunday’s game against Greer’s new team the Saints.

“I don’t know if we’ll match up (for the whole game),” said Evans of Greer. “So far this season they haven’t really been matching up so we’ll just see how they want to play it. Obviously playing against him here we know what type of corner he is. He’s a very smart corner, fast, quick, can change direction and we know him so it’ll be a lot of fun to play against him.”

When asked if Greer knows his tendencies and the ins and outs of Buffalo’s offense better than most corners they’ll face, Evans doesn’t believe Greer will know everything they plan to throw at the Saints.

“It’s a different offense than from when he was here, but he does a good job of reading splits and jumping certain routes,” said Evans. “He’s a smart player and he knows what he’s looking at. He’s learned from a lot of good guys around the league, especially when he was here. He’s a smart player so you can’t just line up and do certain things. You really have to think about what you’re doing.”

Saints head coach Sean Payton did admit that he sat down with Greer earlier this week for some additional insight on Buffalo, it’s personnel and their defensive scheme.
