The 33-year-old Evans was released by the Seahawks over the weekend after losing out in a battle to become one of the club’s starting guards. New Orleans had previously cut him earlier this offseason, given that the team is considering moving former first-round pick Andrus Peat to left guard, Evans could make sense on the right side. Seattle signed Evans for the minimum salary benefit with $80K guaranteed, so he should be pretty cheap if the Saints are interested in a reunion.

Evans appeared in and started 153 games with the Saints from 2006-15. The 316-pounder racked up four first-team All-Pro nods in New Orleans, but he only logged 11 appearances last year as a result of arthroscopic knee surgery. However, Evans’ performance during an abbreviated campaign earned him plaudits from Pro Football Focus, which ranked him 27th among 81 qualifying guards.
