Learning a new system is getting kind of old for Evans. He constantly answered to new offensive coordinators in Buffalo and caught passes from Bledsoe, Losman, Kelly Holcomb, Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm.

Evans, though, never complained publicly. He never vented to reporters when passes went to Terrell Owens or Stevie Johnson.

The five-time Bills captain just tried to fulfill a four-year, $37 million contract he signed in 2008 that made him the fourth highest-paid wide receiver at the time.

"It's been a whirlwind in Buffalo," he said. "To come into a stable situation, it builds confidence that I can continue to get better every day."

The Ravens have long sought a wide receiver who could strike fear in cornerbacks. The team signed Donte' Stallworth last season, but coaches never showed any confidence in getting him the ball.

Since 2000, only two Ravens receivers have averaged over 15 yards per catch (minimum 30 catches) for a season. Evans has averaged over 15 yards per catch in six of his NFL seasons.

"One of my biggest attributes is speed, being able to get down the field, stretch the defense," Evans said.

For Evans, the slowest part of his NFL career has been reaching the playoffs.

"I am very excited to come here and be a part of something special," Evans said with a smile. "Obviously, this has been a very historic franchise, a winning organization. I just want to come in and do my part, and do anything I can do to help them win."
