The New Orleans Saints have had some impressive talent along their offensive line throughout their time as a franchise. Interior lineman Jahri Evans may be the best they’ve ever had.

Now, he is getting rewarded for the years of great play that he gave the Saints.

Evans is officially a semifinalist to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Evans was the model of consistency during his time with the Saints.

He was a brick wall for Drew Brees during his career and played a massive role in the growth of New Orleans’ offense. Evans played right guard for the Saints for eleven years.

During that tenure, he was one of the best interior offensive linemen in the NFL.

He missed just seven regular season games during his time in New Orleans. Evans was reliable, and the Saints were very lucky to have him.

This is also Evans’ first year eligible for induction, and he is already a semifinalist. It is a great sign that he could get into Canton at some point.

The Saints’ legend absolutely deserves it.
