NFL Trade Deadline: Should The Falcons Trade For Lee Evans, Who Played For Mike Mularkey In Buffalo?

There have been at least a couple rumors floating around about Bills WR Lee Evans being available for trade. At 0-5, Chan Gailey’s team clearly needs to either get desperate or start building for next year.

It would take quite a commitment to get Buffalo’s only explosive receiving threat out of Gailey’s hands. Evans only has 15 catches in five games this year and has slipped on the depth chart, though he’s right in the mix for the team lead in receptions. The Bills offense is just that bad.

Matt Ryan would be the best quarterback Evans has ever had — and Evans has put together two 1,000-yard seasons in his NFL career. Plus Mike Mularkey is already familiar with Evans, having been the Bills’ head coach for Evans’ first two seasons.

Evans hasn’t missed a game due to injury since 2006. With Michael Jenkins, Harry Douglas, Kerry Meier, and Brian Finneran sporting their share of nicks, why not consider an especially durable receiver?

Then again, the last time we traded for a Bufffalo receiver, things didn’t work out so well.
