JAHRI EVANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Reporter pulls Pulitzer when Saints lineman calls him out

Talk to the Pulitzer. After New Orleans Times-Picayune beat writer Larry Holder criticized Saints All-Pro guard Jahri Evans' Week 5 perfomance against the Bucs, Evans fired back at Holder. So Holder took this out of his holster: One of those moments that are so classic, you want to do a lil' Shmoney Dance to celebrate. But wait! It didn't take Twitter long to flag Holder...

Saints reporter flashes Pulitzer after Jahri Evans rips him

As a Saints fan, it’s been a bit of a tumultuous season.  A 2-3 record heading into the bye week is a disappointment heading into the bye week for a team that very clearly had Super Bowl aspirations.  The losses have been heartbreaking (two on the last play and one SNF blowout in Dallas) and the wins haven’t been all that impressive.  That includes an overtime home victory...

Saints reporter Larry Holder has great response to Jahri Evans criticism

New Orleans Saints beat reporter Larry Holder, who has written for The Times-Picayune since 2012, wrote a piece earlier this week that included some criticism of All-Pro offensive guard Jahri Evans. While Holder noted that it was Evans’ blocking that sprung two crucial touchdowns in a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he also concluded...Read More

New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans named top-5 in the NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Center and guard prospects not on Saints’ radar

Few teams are in a position where they can essentially eliminate one position from their draft board altogether, but that’s exactly where the Saints find themselves when it comes to interior lineman. New Orleans is home to (potentially) the best duo of guards in the game in Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. Both were pro bowlers in 2013, and neither is in play for free agency this year...

Saints Nation: Interior Depth An Issue for Saints

We saw how much having Jahri Evans healthy meant to this team last week as undrafted rookie Tim Lelito started his first game and struggled mightily going up against Darnell Dockett. Evans was active and dressed in that game, mind you, because Tim Lelito is their only backup interior lineman. The Saints also have Bryce Harris and Terron Armstead as reserve linemen, but both are tackles...

Saints Nation: Thomas Morstead and Jahri Evans to Pro Bowl

Pro Bowl rosters were announced and only two Saints players made it to the starting roster this year. Guard Jahri Evans is headed to the game for the fourth year in a row, and punter Thomas Morstead who is one game away from breaking the all time net yards average record for a season is a first timer. While both are very much deserved, Evans' place amongst the elite group is...

Saints looking to win out, playoffs or not

Saints guard Jahri Evans acknowledges a measure of regret that it took so long - probably too long - for New Orleans to resemble the playoff contender it had been the previous three seasons. Evans says the Saints' 41-0 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday offered a glimpse of how New Orleans should have played earlier this season. Still, Evans and his teammates say winning out...

Q&A with Saints guard Jahri Evans

Of all the NFL's elite players, few have traveled a more curious path than New Orleans Saints right guard Jahri Evans. He attended a Division II program -- Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania -- on an academic scholarship. He never played organized football until reaching high school. Even then, Evans was forced to miss his senior season because of an injury. And now? Evans...

Saints OL Jahri Evans Says Ndamukong Suh is Dirty After the Whistle

Saints guard Jahri Evans is a Pro Bowl lineman preparing for his team’s Wild Card playoff game against the Lions Saturday. He has one of his toughest assignments of the season — protecting Drew Brees from Detroit’s rowdy defensive line led by Ndamukong Suh. Though Evans respects Suh, he recognizes the Lions lineman is dirty. “I think some things he does is dirty, after the...
