Saints Re-Sign Jahri Evans

11:35am: Jahri Evans is back with the Saints. The team agreed to bring the offensive guard back into the fold today on a one-year deal, as Ian Rapoport of tweets

Over the course of ten seasons in New Orleans, Evans started in all 153 of his appearances and earned four first-team All-Pro nods. However, knee and ankle injuries limited him to 11 games in 2015 and he was cut loose this offseason for cap reasons. Evans hooked on with the Seahawks in early August, but he was released last week after he failed to win a starting job.

Now, New Orleans is expected to move former first-round pick Andrus Peat to left guard, placing Evans on the right side. Evans, 33, may or may not start ahead of Tim Lelito.

The Saints freed up a roster spot this morning when they cut quarterback Garrett Grayson.
