Things have changed this season as the Bills offense is clicking under first-year coordinator Turk Schonert. The offense has already produced 10 touchdowns (not including returns) after managing just 20 last year.
"He always believed this was going to be a good team," Evans' agent Ben Dogra told The AP. "He's very comfortable with the leadership at the top. And the winning this year was the icing on the cake."
With Evans signed, the Bills secured another core player after they extended the contracts of defensive tackle Kyle Williams and guard Brad Butler this past summer. The Bills, last year, also extended the deals of defensive ends Aaron Schobel and Chris Kelsay, and punter Brian Moorman.
Next on the Bills' to-do list is negotiating a contract extension with left tackle Jason Peters, who ended an offseason-long holdout when he reported to the team early last month. Peters reported only after he received certain assurances from the Bills that they would open talks to restructure the final two years the Pro Bowl player has left on his contract after this season.
