Jahri Evans is visiting the Bills today, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). The Bills are reportedly at a standstill in their talks with Richie Incognito, so Evans could be a potential replacement for the interior lineman.
Evans has started 153 games for the Saints dating back 2006 and earned four First-Team All-Pro selections. Evans had been set to carry an $8.2MM cap figure this season, the fourth-highest on the team, and was signed through the 2017 campaign. Now, the Bills are eyeing him as an option for their offensive line at a lower rate.
The Bills have reportedly “lowballed” Incognito in recent weeks and over the weekend it was reported that the team has gone several-day stretches without contacting his agent. Incognito, who earned a Pro Bowl nod for his strong comeback season in 2015, will turn 33 this July. The Bills rolled the dice on him at a time when many NFL teams would not, but he is not interested in giving Buffalo a discount as a result.
