The Green Bay Packers made a move to shore up their offensive line by reportedly signing four-time First-Team All-Pro guard Jahri Evans. This move was first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Evans, originally a fourth-round pick out of Bloomsburg in 2006, had spent his entire career with the New Orleans Saints.

He has made it to six Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl with the Saints and brings a wealth of big-game experience to Green Bay.

Evans started 169 games the past 11 seasons with the Saints, including all 16 games last season. He isn’t as dominant as he was in his prime but still offers an upgrade after the Packers lost T.J. Lang to NFC North rival Detroit this offseason.
