Seahawks sign guard Jahri Evans

Saturday August 6th, 2016

The Seattle Seahawks have signed offensive guard Jahri Evans, the team announced Saturday.

Evans, 32, is a six-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro, spending his entire career with the Saints. He was released by New Orleans this off-season after 10 years with the team.

Seattle boasted the league’s third-best rushing offense last season, but ran for just 10 touchdowns. The Seahawks’ offensive line allowed 46 sacks, placing them just outside the bottom-five in pass protection.

The Seattle Times reported this week that Evans’s contract would likely be a one-year deal.

The Seahawks waived guard Kona Schwenke in a corresponding move.
