NFL All-Pro Jahri Evans shows his appreciation to Bloomsburg U. and Frankford High
Jahri Evans has never forgotten where he started.
On Monday, Evans rang the bell at Frankford High School, welcoming students as they filed into the hallways for the start of a new school year. From time to time, the six-time NFL Pro Bowl guard has been a notable presence walking the halls of his alma mater; as well as giving his time and resources toward the football team. Evans' foundation has been a cornerstone for his efforts over the years both at his high school and his college alma mater, Bloomsburg University.
Should the Panthers sign free agent guard Jahri Evans?
Jahri Evans is another player some way into his late-career decline, but again is coming down from such a high that he still represents a capable set of hands at a spot where some teams are starting disastrous players. His overall PFF grade in 2017 was 71.7, good enough for 30th in the league, but this is a league with 64 starting guards, and many more hitting the field due to injury, so Evans can still patch up a problem spot for a team, and that could make all the difference to an offense. He allowed just two sacks and 20 additional pressures in 2017.
Bloomsburg University - Former Husky Great Makes Big Donation For Scoreboard At Redman Stadium
BLOOMSBURG, Pa. – Former Bloomsburg University and NFL great Jahri Evans '07 has committed $500,000 for a new LED video scoreboard for Danny Hale Field at Redman Stadium. The new board will be dedicated before the opening kickoff at the Huskies' home opener on Sept. 1.
There’s an NFL Star Opening a Restaurant in South Philly
Jahri Evans is an all-pro offensive guard for the Green Bay Packers. James Morrissey is a restaurant designer who made the leap into ownership with SOMO Manayunk in the spring of 2017. And together (along with Evans’s wife Takia), they’re partnering for a big opening in South Philly with a very unusual name
5 Linemen the Vikings Should Be Targeting
One name we’ve heard a lot throughout this process is that of Jahri Evans, a former New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers guard. Evans is an veteran who would provide experience to our rather young and inexperienced offensive line. He would be able to to step in and start at either side of the line, although it’s more likely he would step in as the right guard where he has played for much of his career. Despite a decline in performance over the last few years, Evans still came up with the 21st best pass blocking grade from PFF out of any interior lineman.
Best Free-Agent Option Remaining for Every NFL Team
Offensive guard Jahri Evans is arguably the best interior lineman available on the free-agent market. The B/R 1000 scouts praised his 2017 work with the Packers, writing that he "once again displayed impressive play strength and bench-press ability in pass protection, helping hold together a banged-up Packers offensive line." Overall, Evans ranked 26th out of 83 guards.
Evans is 35 years old, but if he has another year left in him, the 49ers should place a call.
The Jahri Evans Foundation helps Philadelphia youth and a whole lot more
Growing up in Philadelphia Jahri Evans didn’t have the opportunity or the means to go football camps to improve his game. Evans relied on his size and talent to star at Frankford High School, and then earn an academic scholarship to Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. Now, after 12 NFL seasons, , the six-time Pro Bowl guard continues to help those kids back in Philadelphia who were just like he was. Through the Jahri Evans Foundation, which the big guard started with his sister, Carmella Green, thousands of young men have been able to go to a free football camp over the past 10 years.
