Bengals Linked To Kentucky Defensive End DeQuin Evans

According to Matt Jones (not that Matt Jones), Kentucky Wildcat defensive end DeQuin Evans is signing with the Cincinnati Bengals. [Note: Jones is the host of KSTV, writer for CBSSports.com and founder of KentuckySportsRadio.com]

Evans was listed as the SEC defensive linemen of week 11 against Vanderbilt, posting a combined sack and three tackles for loss.

Evans posted 7.5 quarterback sacks during two seasons with the Wildcats, only 1.5 quarterback sacks coming in 2010. According to his Kentucky athletic page, Evans was named a fourth-team All-SEC selection, leading Kentucky with 12.5 tackles for loss and six quarterback sacks.

CBSSports.com's Draft Page listed Evans as the 45th best defensive end during April's NFL Draft. They write: "Has good quickness and a high motor, a combination that often gets him into the opponent backfield."

Evans is the fourth undrafted free agent linked to the Cincinnati Bengals -- none have been announced.
