Originally a 2017 sixth-round Bengals draft choice, Evans in ’19 enters his third season in Cincinnati and looks to continue to expand his role in the LB rotation ... Played in 14 games (five starts) in 2018, seeing action on 45.2 percent of Bengals’ defensive snaps, and totaled 59 tackles (fifth on team), 1.5 sacks, an INT and three PDs ... Missed final two games due to ankle injury suffered in Game 14 vs. Oakland ... As a rookie in 2017, saw his playing time increase as season progressed, and started four games late in the year after injuries hit Cincinnati’s starting LBs.

Bengals seeking draft crashers
More than veterans like 49ers safety Eric Reid are touring Paul Brown Stadium these days. ‘Tis the season of the kids and the Bengals have until April 18 to interview and examine 30 prospective rookies in their building. And they all didn't go to the scouting combine, like last year's sixth-rounder Jordan Evans.
At the creation, Simmons only looks to next kick
Darrin Simmons helped Marvin Lewis change the Bengals' culture from the Paul Brown Stadium Spa and Health Club to an AFC North factory. But he's only looking at the first kick in Sunday's game (4:25 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 12) and not the murky future.
Defense throws it back to look ahead
This is how it used to look back in the day. The NFL’s best quarterbacks would waltz into Paul Brown Stadium and leave with not only a loss, but a bruised passer rating courtesy of the Double A Gap blitz and a Velcro secondary. In Sunday's 26-17 win over Matthew Stafford's Lions the Bengals defense looked to the future with a blast from the past.
