“It’s a great group of guys here, these guys work hard,” Evans said. “They’re about winning. I’ve had 10 good years, won a lot of games, and done a lot of good things. It feels good up here, it’s a good offense, a good scheme and I’m just looking to get to work.”
And while Evans is approaching his 33rd birthday and was recently released by a team for the first time in his NFL career, he feels like he has plenty left in the tank to give to the Seahawks in 2016.
“I feel great, I still feel like I’m a top guard in this league if not the best,” he said. “I’m just going out there to work hard and just show it on the field really. The eye in the sky doesn’t lie. I’ve been asked to do a lot of things in New Orleans that I probably won’t be asked to do here, that’s a little bit different, but I’m just looking to go out there and work hard.”
