Former New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Jahri Evans has been named one of the 15 finalists for the 2024 Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Evans was drafted by the Saints in the 4th round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played a total of 11 seasons in New Orleans (2006-2016) which included 5 playoff teams and the Super Bowl 44 championship team. Evans also earned Pro Bowl honors for a total of 6 straight seasons (2009-2014), and he was inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame in 2022. Evans is currently a member of the Saints coaching staff as an offensive assistant.

Evans was named as one of the 25 semifinalists for the 2024 class last month. He was also named as a semifinalist for the 2023 class, which was his first year of eligibility.

The inductees will be announced during the week of Super Bowl LVIII at the NFL Honors ceremony on Thursday, February 8th, 2024.
