Fred Evans Suspended for Two Games


Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Fred Evans received a two-game suspension Tuesday from the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy during a pair of offseason problems.

Evans was arrested twice this summer while he was on Miami's roster, for marijuana possession in Texas and for fighting with police in Florida.

He will not be paid and is required to sit out this week and next, before he's eligible to return to the active roster on Monday, Dec. 10. Signed during training camp after being cut by the Dolphins in June, Evans has stayed out of trouble in Minnesota but made little impact with Pro Bowl players at both of the tackle spots in Kevin Williams and Pat Williams.

You may remember Fred Evans as the guy that got the crap tazed out of him in Miami early in the off-season (the "fighting with police" charge mentioned above), leading to his release from the Dolphins.  At least, I would think so. . .you wouldn't remember him from his play on the field or anything like that.

Eh, this really shouldn't hurt us too much.  I was never a fan of the Evans signing to begin with, and he hasn't done a heck of a lot to make me start feeling differently at this point.
