New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans' agent, Jerrold Colton, confirmed that his All-Pro client has not been attending the Saints' offseason conditioning program this week.

Re: Jahri Evans not attending workouts

Considering we have adquate backups for Brown, I think it is justified.

Evans is the man and he doesn't get hurt.

guard is a much easier position to play......not taking away from evans but a bad interior linemen can be masked and their mistakes can be covered up......like goodwin

if a tackle stinks, everybody and their mother knows it

while evans may be better at his position than brown, brown's position is easily the 2nd most important on the offense if not the first most important and that makes brown as important if not more than evans

Re: Jahri Evans not attending workouts

In March, when Loomis was joking around saying that the FO was behind schedule, that was all good, because they had a pretty good excuse...

Now it's time to work and get your O-line signed

Quarterback, Offensive Coordinator, Center, Running Back, Wide Receiver all have to make reads before the snap...

The Left Tackle has to make sure he doesn't get beat by the Defensive End...

The guard has to get out, pull trap, pancake Defensive Tackles, often bigger than him, for the whole game...

I love your passion, but your wrong on this; except, I don't like hold outs either, even if it is Evans whose earned a major pay day...

Consider this...

if you were Saints GM, offer either Evans or Brown for trade and see who other teams want and what they'd offer...Evans wins
