Saints G Jahri Evans Excited About New Contract

Since the previous post was about New England Patriots Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins' desire to get a new contract, it only makes sense to follow that with a post about how excited New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans is now that he's got a new seven-year, $56.7 million dollar contract.

"I'm honored, coming from a Division II small school guy to being on the stage I am now," Evans told Mike Triplett of The Times-Picayune. "And I just want to continue to win games. I've always won games throughout my career in high school and college and ever since I came here in 2006 and Sean Payton came in and changed the aura around this team. We've been winning ever since then, and we want to keep that up."

The Saints begin their "Organized Team Activity" sessions on Tuesday, and Evans will be in attendance.

"I'm very ready to get on the field," Evans added. "It's been a short break, but it was needed. And now it's time to get back to work."
