Evans Will Re-Sign With The Redskins

Saturday, April 1, 2006

Unrestricted free agent defensive lineman Demetric Evans is re-signing with the Washington Redskins, according to his agent, Jordan Woy . Evans, whose versatility and work ethic have endeared him to teammates and coaches, filled in at end and tackle last season and solidifies a defensive line that added talented pass rusher Andre Carter this offseason.

Woy would not comment on the length or sum of Evans's contract. Evans drew interest from several teams and visited San Francisco and New Orleans.

Evans, 26, has five years of experience.

Woy also represents free agent linebacker Keith Adams , and said he has had several conversations with the Redskins regarding that client. The Redskins also are considering re-signing veteran free agent linebacker Warrick Holdman , according to a source. Several league sources said they expect the team to seek an outside linebacker with its first pick in April's draft (second round). . . .

Restricted free agent cornerback Ade Jimoh officially re-signed yesterday after receiving a one-year contract tender from the team. . . . One of Sean Taylor 's attorneys said he is preparing a motion to seek a dismissal of the felony assault charges facing the Redskins safety. Richard Sharpstein said plea bargain discussions with Miami prosecutors could continue in the case, which is scheduled to go to trial April 10. Sharpstein said he intends to present the motion before the judge at a prescheduled hearing on Tuesday, while prosecutor Mike Grieco said, "I don't see there being any grounds for a dismissal."
