It's sort of jarring to see Lee Evans in different colors, isn't it?

Last night, the former Buffalo Bills star receiver made his pre-season debut with the Baltimore Ravens, exactly one week after the Bills flipped him to the Ravens for a reported fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Evans, working for the first time in live game situations with quarterback Joe Flacco and the rest of Baltimore's offense, did not disappoint.

Evans was Baltimore's leading receiver on the night, hauling in three passes for 68 yards. That included a 43-yard passing play in the first half, when Flacco lobbed a beautiful throw that the streaking Evans caught in stride. Evans beat Kansas City rookie cornerback Jalil Brown on the play, but Brown was able to bring him down from behind to prevent the touchdown.

The Ravens are a veteran team, and Evans should fit right in and be the type of vertical threat that Flacco and his offense have sorely needed. Time will soon tell if that's an element that Chan Gailey's offense will sorely need to get back, as well.
