Jahri Evans: Older, but still elite

Jahri Evans: Older, but still elite

New Green Bay Packers G Jahri Evans, 33,  is eyeing to make the most of his newfound opportunity with the team. While retirement could have been an option at his age, Evans felt he’d be a great fit for the right team…

… and that team was Green Bay:

“I was just waiting on a phone call from a team like Green Bay,” Evans said, via Ryan Wood of the Journal-Sentinel. “They came calling, and I came, and it worked out well. I wasn’t going to play for a team that didn’t have a chance to win. I would rather just wait until somebody that had a chance to win needed me.”

“I think I’m still playing at an elite level,” he added. “Obviously, I’m a little bit older, but coming from New Orleans we were still the No. 1 offense last year, threw the ball more than anybody. We only had 27 sacks (sixth fewest in the NFL), so those numbers speak for themselves. I’m here trying to bring that success to this team, to Green Bay.”
