When he was acquired from the Buffalo Bills, Evans had two years and over $7.5 million remaining on his contract; Evans' $3.275 million base salary was reduced to $810,000, with the Ravens giving the 30-year-old receiver a $2.465 million signing bonus that is prorated over the next two seasons. Evans had a $100,000 "likely to be earned incentive" for this season, which has been increased to $150,000 and is tied to his average yards per reception. =he never saw this as he was injured for most of the season- he only had 4 receptions going into the playoffs.
He was cut after the season and only cost us about 4 million.
