Evans visited the 49ers on Tuesday. He returned home to the East Coast to weigh the 49ers’ offer against returning to the Redskins.
Evans (6-foot-4, 287 pounds) started 11 games for the Redskins last season at left defensive end. He is known for being solid against the run and can get some push with his pass rush. Evans had a career-high 3.5 sacks last season. Evans, who has seven years of NFL experience, turns 30 in September.
