Lee Evans on NFL Countdown Sunday

Former Buffalo Bills receiver Lee Evans is going to be featured in a story on ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” at 10 a.m. Sunday with the headline:  “Lee Evans’ Lingering Image.”

According to an ESPN release this morning, Adam Schefter reports on why Evans feels it is important to keep a photo in his home of his catch of what appeared to be a game-winning touchdown pass in last season’s AFC title game with New England and subsequent drop two plays before Baltimore’s Billy Cundiff added to the heartbreak of Ravens fans by missing a game-tying field goal.

The Ravens meet the Patriots again Sunday in the AFC title game.

In the same release today, Elizabeth Merrill of ESPN. com wrote: “Here’s the thing you need to know about Lee Evans: He’s fine. One year after a potential winning touchdown catch was slapped out of his hands in the waning seconds of the AFC Championship Game, Evans sat in front of a television in his house last weekend, hoping for the second chance he never got. A few minutes earlier, Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones had dropped a third-and-5 pass in a playoff game at Denver. The Ravens trailed by seven and were running out of time in the frigid mountain air. Joe Flacco heaved up a 70-yard prayer, and Jones wrapped his arms around it and found the end zone.”

In a previous report, Merrill called Evans the “anti-diva” of receivers and said he is hoping to overcome recurring ankle injuries in an attempt to play somewhere next season. He was out of the NFL this season after being cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
