Due to his statistically down 2010 season and the emergence of Stevie Johnson, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Lee Evans has been on the proverbial trading block for months - at least in the court of opinion. That rhetoric will reach another level today, as Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reports that teams interested in exploring a trade for Evans have been "sniffing around" the veteran receiver.
Which isn't much of a report, when you think about it. Any team can sniff around any other player in the league; it only matters if the Bills have interest in trading Evans, and Chan Gailey has spent the off-season talking up plans to get Evans more involved in the offense. Add in the fact that Pompei uses the Brad Smith signing - and subsequent crowding at receiver, where Smith isn't even practicing - as more evidence that Evans could be on the outs, and this smells like a whole lot of nothing.
In my opinion, you're making a mistake if you're holding your breath waiting for an Evans trade. It's not an impossibility, but it's not remotely likely, either.
