Jets re-sign Josh Evans

After losing Jason Ferguson to Dallas in free agency, it's no secret the Jets are in dire need of a player to start next to Dewayne Robertson on the defensive line.<p> On Tuesday, they might have landed that player with the re-signing of defensive tackle Josh Evans.<p>

Evans, 6-3, 280 pounds, will be entering his 10th NFL season in 2005 and is expected to return to the playing field after missing the final 15 regular season games and both of the Club's playoff games of the 2004 season with a back injury. The native of Langdale, AL has played in 93 regular season games throughout his career and made 53 starts, while accounting for 301 tackles, 21.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, four fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. He entered the league in 1995 as a rookie free agent with the Houston Oilers (1995-1996), moved with the team to Tennessee (1997-2001) and joined the Jets as an unrestricted free agent in 2002.
