Evans passes physical, Harewood off PUP

Acquired yesterday in a trade with the Bills, new Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans has passed his physical and is out on the practice field today in Owings Mills.

The trade was not officially complete until the Ravens brought Evans in and had their doctors take a look at him. Now that they've done so, the Ravens will ship a 2012 fourth-round pick to Buffalo in return for the 30-year-old receiver.

Because his number with the Bills (No. 83) is being worn by tight end Ed Dickson, Evans is sporting No. 85 for now. We'll see if he decides to offer Dickson some type of financial package to get the second-year tight end to relinquish the No. 83.

For now, though, Evans is wearing Derrick Mason's old number, which is ironic, given that Evans will also take Mason's role as the Ravens' No. 2 wide receiver.

Offensive tackle Ramon Harewood is joining Evans and the rest of the Ravens out on the practice field today, as the 2010 sixth-round pick has been activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Harewood has said he's anxious to throw his hat into the ring in the battle for the starting right tackle job, but he's missed the first two weeks of practice after coming off surgery on both of his knees, and has a lot of catching up to do to truly compete with Oniel Cousins and Jah Reid for a starting spot.
