"The Saints came to us for the second year in a row about doing a little contract adjustment and pay cut this year," Jerrold Colton, the agent for the six-time Pro Bowl guard said on WIP (Philadelphia) this week. "We weren't going to do it again.

"He's healthy and hungry and looking forward to the next chapter of his career."

Evans agreed to restructure his deal last year, which helped the cap-strapped Saints save about $4 million. This year, they needed to shave as much as possible off the $8.2 million Evans was set to cost them in 2016. Instead, they'll be watching him play football somewhere else.

Healthy?!

If that is true then he has certainly declined from his prime.

I guess he didn't learn from Evan Mathis last year, who ended up with a $2 million pay cut

this could actually be one of the few times the Saints let a player go a year to early than a year to late, seems to work for New England

Nicks was in his prime. Evans is past his prime.

I was being sarcastic, it didn't really work out that well for Nicks, did it? .

I know I am in the minority but I think the saints missed out trading him to the Bills last year if the rumors were correct.

32, missed 5 games last year, and was cut by a team playing within a win-now window
I don't wish ill on on him, but he made a mistake

He counts $5.1 mil against anyway, AND he forfeited another million roster bonus, so he'd need to sign for 5+ to break even, and that's not going to happen

I want a stud at OG, Evans play was average at best last season. Payton might go FA on the G position but even so I would take 1 in the 3rd just to fortify G.
