SAN FRANCISCO -- You never know who'll you run into at an NFL game.
In the Candlestick Park lot before this afternoon's game between the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers, a smiling Lee Evans came over to say hello to Mark Gaughan and me.
Evans was passing through with a friend from Orchard Park on their way to Napa Valley and decided to take in the game. Evans said it will be his first NFL game as a fan.
I can't recall the last time I've seen Evans so happy. He told me he's enjoying retirement after being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars in training camp and that it's permanent. He spurned interest from the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys.
Evans played his final game for the Baltimore Ravens last season and still has a place in the Baltimore area, but he and his wife plan on relocating to Virginia.
