Found January 23, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans could end up being released, since he’s owed a $1 million roster bonus in the offseason and #3.27 million base salary for the 2012 season.

It doesn’t make sense to pay that much money to Evans,  who was hurt for the majority of the season and couldn’t secure a reception in the end zone to propel the Ravens to the Super Bowl.

With the emergence of rookie Torrey Smith alongside Anquan Boldin,  keeping Evans around really doesn’t make sense for next season.

In The Red Zone - 1/24

Each time I see the replay of Sterling Moore knocking the ball away from Lee Evans I can’t believe that the rookie with only a few games of NFL experience had the presence of mind to make that play.  But thank God he did because when you combine that with just an awful field goal attempt by Baltimore it sent the Patriots to Super Bowl XLVI. I say that whole attempt was bad...

The game looked as if it was set up for an overtime finish...
