Evans, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2013. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $2.289 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Evans appeared in all 16 games for the Jagaurs and recorded 53 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble, a recovery and two pass defenses.
Davis, 27, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Bethune-Cookman back in 2012. He was on an off of their practice squad before making the 53-man roster in 2014.
Davis returned to the Jaguars on a one-year exclusive rights deal last year and was brought back on a restricted tender several months ago.
In 2015, Davis appeared in 14 games for the Jaguars and recorded 11 tackles, 3.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a recovery and a pass defense.
