He started the final two regular season games and the playoff game against Philadelphia while Williams worked through legal problems and an injury.

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.

Evans pleaded not guilty to multiple charges last month. He was on probation for a marijuana possession arrest when he was arrested in June, meaning he could face discipline under the NFL's conduct policy.
