Good news Patriots fans: division-foe Buffalo Bills traded their five-time captain and one of their few offensive weapons on Friday. Bad news: he's heading to perennial AFC contender Baltimore.
The Ravens improved their offense by dealing a fourth-round pick to the Buffalo Bills for wide receiver Lee Evans. The eight-year pro figures to be the team's second receiver behind Pro-Bowler Anquan Boldin.
Evans had less than 600 yards in 13 games during the 2010-11 season. His most productive season came in 2006, when he caught for 1,292 yards and eight touchdowns.
"We're excited about getting Lee Evans," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Friday. "He's a proven player in this league, and a quality person who will fit in well on our team."
