The Jacksonville Jaguars and wide receiver Lee Evans agreed to a one-year deal, the Florida Times-Union reported citing a source.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but the newspaper reported that Evans will officially sign the contract on Monday.
Evans was a non-factor for the Baltimore Ravens last season, appearing in only nine games and catching a career-low four passes for 74 yards. He was released last month.
The speedy wideout spent his first seven seasons with the Buffalo Bills, hauling in 377 receptions, 5,934 yards and 43 touchdowns. He was the 13th overall pick of the 2004 draft by the Bills.
