Source: Evans goes to Niners
Evans opted to go with the 49ers on Wednesday night. He agreed to a two-year, $3.8 million deal, accroding to a source.
The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Evans will be part of the 49ers' rotation of defensive ends in their 3-4 scheme. The move will be a bit of a change for Evans. He's been in a 4-3 scheme with the Redskins.
Evans had his most productive year in 2008. He started 11 games with 33 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. After playing two years in Dallas, Evans had been with the Redskins for five years.
