Saints guard Jahri Evans took pay cut to secure future with team
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Saints guard Jahri Evans reworked his contract this offseason to secure his future with the team, per ESPN.com.

Evans, who is entering his 10th season in the NFL, took pay cuts in 2015 and 2016, but also added an extra year to his contract, something he valued in the process.

"It worked out in the end. You know, it's part of the business, obviously. And I'm glad to be here," Evans said.

Evans said he was happy head coach Sean Payton kept the line of communication with him active throughout the process.

"So that was very great, and I was pleased with that," said Evans, who added, "I still had two years under contract, so I never saw myself not being here."

Saints to start Jahri Evans, Tim Lelito at guard in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Saints coach Sean Payton said at the annual NFL meeting that he doesn't think the moves the team has made this offseason have opened any holes in the starting lineup, indicating specifically that Tim Lelito would join Jahri Evans as the team's starting guards after the departure of Ben Grubbs, Saints.com reports.

"Those aren’t holes," Payton said about losing Grubbs and middle linebacker Curtis Lofton. "We’re not moving a player if we feel like there’s no…we feel like we have a pretty good idea of how everything is lining up. We’ve got a center we know that starts in this NFL, we’ve got a guard, (Tim) Lelito will play left guard, Jahri Evans is the right guard. The same way at receiver. So we weren’t looking to make a move that created another 'must'."

Lelito played 294 snaps on offense last season, per Pro Football Focus, and graded out positively as a run blocker and negatively as a pass blocker.  He was an undrafted free agent out of Grand Valley State in 2013.
