Evans Says Saints Will be Most Prepared Team Post Lockout

Heath Evans, who can be an unrestricted free agent, says that come the start of training camp, the Saints will be the most prepared team mainly due to Drew Brees and Jonathan Vilma.

Although he can become an unrestricted free agent, Evans has said previously he would like to re-sign with the Saints. He’s been taking part in the players-only workouts the Saints have been having much of the offseason. In this radio interview, Evans said those workouts could help set the Saints apart from the rest of the league.

“Really the only difference is Drew Brees and Jonathan Vilma,’’ Evans said. “I’m not saying that other teams don’t have great leadership because I know that exists on most teams in this league. I think there’s very few teams that have it on both sides of the ball. … Everything [Drew] does is methodically mapped out and planned out. The guy’s been playing in this league 10 years, going on 11. He’s been through plenty of minicamps. … Those guys are doing a great thing and I definitely think it’s going to give the Saints a leg up, an advantage, especially early on in the season if this lockout pushes on into late July, early August.”
