Lee Evans may actually get a chance to play in the postseason. The veteran wide receiver has been traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2012 draft pick, both teams announced Friday.

A first-round draft pick for the Bills in 2004, Evans had 1,000-yard seasons in 2006 and 2008, but his numbers dropped off the last couple of years as Buffalo's offense struggled. Last season, he caught 37 passes for 578 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games.

Evans had been the subject of trade rumors because the Bills have an abundance of receivers. Meanwhile, the Ravens are looking to add depth after cutting Derrick Mason and tight end Todd Heap.

The Bills never made the playoffs during Evans' seven seasons in Buffalo; the Ravens made the postseason four times during that stretch, including the last three seasons.
