NFL Free Agency 2012: Jaguars Interested In Legedu Naanee, Lee Evans?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a number of moves since the beginning the NFL's free agency period, including re-signing safety Dwight Lowery, signing defensive end Jeremy Mincey and wide receiver Laurent Robinson, and adding Chad Henne as their backup quarterback. There have been rumors that they're interested in Tim Tebow, but judging by their current team depth chart, it seems likely that the rumors are merely that: rumors.

But the Jaguars are still interested in adding a few more players, and according to Tania Ganguli from the Florida Times-Union, they are targeting wide receivers:

The Jaguars have interest in free agent receivers Lee Evans and Legedu Naanee. [...]

Jacksonville general manager Gene Smith said last week that he would still like to add another receiver in free agency or the draft. The Jaguars signed receiver Laurent Robinson to a five-year deal worth $32.5 million with close to $14 million in guarantees.

Evans or Naanee are not big-name receivers, but they both have a track record of success and should come relatively cheaply considering their mediocre recent history. Evans only started two games for the Ravens last season, while Nannee played in 15 games and had 10 starts. The Jaguars shouldn't expect either player to step in as a star, but both would make decent depth signings.
