Adam Schefter: Lee Evans Trade Could Be Completed This Weekend

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting what many of you have known for days, and what I have steadfastly refused to believe: that the Buffalo Bills are very open to the idea of trading Lee Evans, and that a deal could be completed within the next 48 hours. Evans has been linked to the Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens, the latter of which is reportedly no longer interested.

Well, then. Anyone have any tasty crow recipes?

We'll see if this comes to fruition, because I'd still like to believe that Buddy Nix will hold out a bit for more than a mere mid-round draft pick. That's considering that Evans, despite his career-low production in 2010, is still the team's best receiving threat, and still the first player that opposing defenses must game plan for.

There are many factors at play here, particularly if an Evans trade is consummated. In that event, it would almost become imperative that the team lock Stevie Johnson up long-term. That'd be the first order of business, as he's entering the final year of his rookie deal. Then there's the question of figuring out who starts opposite Johnson; Roscoe Parrish and David Nelson are better fits for the slot, so we may be talking about seeing Donald Jones, Marcus Easley or Buster Davis in two-receiver sets.

Buckle up. This apparently could happen quickly, and no matter what, it's now officially very interesting.
