The Packers released Evans from their practice squad Tuesday.
The timing of Evans' dismissal from the practice squad is curious after the Packers promoted fellow quarterback Joe Callahan to the 53-man roster, but it appears Green Bay is content to explore other developmental quarterback options to fill out the practice squad. Evans, a dual-threat signal caller out of Virginia Tech, first signed with the Packers in October following a brief stint with the Eagles during the offseason.

The addition of Evans will round out the quarterback room in Green Bay in the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). After suffering a foot injury during the Eagles' offseason program, Evans has found himself in an ideal situation for a potential appearance at some point this season, especially if anything befalls Brett Hundley or Joe Callahan.
Evans (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Eagles on Monday, NFL.com's Adam Caplan reports.
Evans signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent this offseason but quickly landed on IR after injuring his foot. However, after reaching an injury settlement Monday, he'll now head back to the free-agent market.
Evans (foot) was waived by the Eagles on Sunday with an injury settlement, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With the likes of Carson Wentz, Nick Foles and Matt McGloin in the fold at quarterback, Evans was always a long shot to make the team's final roster. He'll look to latch on with another team ahead of training camp in hopes of making a regular-season roster, but if all else fails, Evans could find a spot on a practice squad as a developmental project during the season.
