Report: Bills Trade WR Lee Evans To Ravens

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting, via Twitter, that the Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Lee Evans to the Baltimore Ravens.

Schefter also reports that the Bills will receive the Ravens' fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft for Evans' services. Previous reports indicated that the Bills were asking for a third-round pick, and Chris Mortensen reports that the two teams discussed an offensive lineman as part of the trade, as well. In the end, Buddy Nix settled - I cannot emphasize the word "settled" enough - for a draft pick.

Well, then. That's out of the way, I suppose. But as we discussed earlier this morning, this puts an awful lot of pressure on a very young and inexperienced Bills receiving corps.

Evans was the Bills' first-round pick (No. 13 overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft. In seven seasons with Buffalo, Evans accumulated 377 receptions, 5,934 yards and 43 touchdowns. He departs the Bills as the third-leading receiver in franchise history, having just surpassed Elbert Dubenion for that honor last year. With Evans out of the picture, Stevie Johnson becomes the Bills' de facto go-to receiver.
