Free agent DT Fred Evans worked out for the Patriots.
Evans visited on Friday, but left without a contract. He would give New England a rotational run-stopper behind Vince Wilfork, Sealver Siliga, and rookie DL Dominique Easley. 30-year-old Evans made three starts and played 356 snaps for the Vikings last year. He was released during final cuts. Sat, Sep 13, 2014 02:36:00 PM

Date:

Vikings released DT Fred Evans.

Evans, 30, was made expendable after seventh-rounder Shamar Stephen's strong preseason. He may be brought back as depth following Week 1 when veteran salaries aren't fully guaranteed. Evans has played seven years in Minnesota.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 10:01:00 AM

Vikings re-signed DT Fred Evans.

The career reserve returns for an eighth season in Minnesota. Evans is currently atop the Vikings' depth chart at nose tackle, but is unlikely to stay there. Evans played 356 snaps a season. He's a pure run stopper.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 04:37:00 PM

The Vikings will give Fred Evans a chance to unseat Letroy Guion for their starting nose tackle job in training camp.

"The coaches keep telling me that, hey, we need to give Fred a shot to compete for the No. 1 job," said Leslie Frazier. At nose tackle -- a run-stopping position -- 6-foot-4, 305-pound Evans would give Minnesota a stouter option after its run defense became a liability down the stretch last season. Guion is a converted three-technique gap shooter. His base salary is $2.45 million.

Vikings re-signed DT Fred Evans to a two-year contract.

A rotational lineman, Evans appeared in all 16 games last season, making 22 tackles off the bench and contributing some on special teams. The six-year veteran will compete for playing time with Christian Ballard and Letroy Guion. Evans' return may be a sign that Remi Ayodele will ultimately be released.

Vikings re-signed DT Fred Evans.

Minnesota didn't extend a restricted free agent tender to Evans in March after he made $1.8 million in 2010. A career reserve, Evans notched just four tackles in eight games last season. He'll have a similarly quiet 2011.
Sun, Jul 31, 2011 10:39:00 AM

Vikings failed to extend a tender to potential restricted free agent DT Fred Evans.

The five-year veteran played under a $1.759 million contract, but the Vikes don't want to exceed that again this year. Evans was likely headed toward the open market anyway. He's a favorite of GM Rick Spielman, so the Vikes could bring him back at a lower rate.
Thu, Mar 3, 2011 05:23:00 PM

Vikings re-signed restricted free agent DT Fred Evans to a one-year, $1.759 million contract.

Pat Williams' backup on the hose, Evans appeared in 12 games last year, making nine tackles off the bench. The 26-year-old's role is unlikely to increase significantly this year behind the Williams Wall and Jimmy Kennedy.
Mon, Apr 12, 2010 12:36:00 PM

The Vikings have assigned DT Fred Evans, a restricted free agent, with a second-round tender.

Evans will be safe for Minnesota after falling behind Jimmy Kennedy and recording just nine tackles off the bench last season. Once viewed as NT Pat Williams' possible eventual successor, Evans' stock has taken a hit.
Wed, Mar 3, 2010 07:56:00 PM

Vikings signed restricted free agent DT Fred Evans to a one-year, $1.545 million contract.

Evans is currently Minnesota's third tackle behind Pat and Kevin Williams. Pat is recovering from multiple surgeries and turning 37, so the Vikes could draft competition for Evans with as early as the No. 22 overall pick.
Mon, Apr 6, 2009 03:39:00 PM

The Vikings extended restricted free agent DT Fred Evans a second-round tender offer.

The second-round tender is for $1.545M. Evans made two starts down the stretch last year when Pat Williams broke his shoulder blade and held up well. Evans finished with 16 tackles.
Wed, Feb 25, 2009 09:29:00 PM

NFL suspended Vikings DT Fred Evans two games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The Vikings will be without their reserve interior tackle for the next two games as his appeal process has been completed. Evans was arrested twice in the offseason prior to signing with the Vikings.
Tue, Nov 27, 2007 03:52:00 PM

Vikings DT Fred Evans will avoid jail time after reaching a plea bargain agreement today.

Evans received two years of probation on his felony charges, with jail time possible if he violates his probation. The current charges, meanwhile, violated a previous probation on a marijuana charge in Texas, where he must now appear on a misdemeanor charge. The important thing to take from this is that Fred Evans is bound to face at a league suspension for his personal conduct.
Thu, Aug 16, 2007 12:17:00 PM

Vikings DT Fred Evans will be tried for felony counts of battery on an officer and resisting arrest, and two misdemeanors, in Miami Thursday.

Evans, who signed with the team Saturday, pleaded not guilty to all four charges in July. He is likely to face disciplinary action from the league.
Mon, Aug 13, 2007 02:58:00 PM

Vikings signed DL Fred Evans.

Evans, who was released by the Dolphins after two offseason arrests while on probation for a marijuana arrest, will compete to be a backup tackle in Minnesota. While Evans doesn't expect jail time, he still thinks he will face a league-issued suspension.
