The Baltimore Ravens, like many NFL teams, will have to make some decisions on veteran player contracts by the start of the new NFL league year, which begins on March 13 at 4:00 pm ET.

And one of the decisions the Ravens will have to make is whether to pay veteran WR Lee Evans his $1 million roster bonus, which a source confirmed is due on the 5th day of free agency.

Evans, who turns 32 in March, missed seven games this season due to a lingering ankle injury. And the speedster has only posted just four receptions this season for 74 yards.

Evans, who was acquired via a trade from the Buffalo Bills back in August, carries a cap number of just under $5.8 million for 2012.

Should the Ravens not pick up Evans’ bonus, that would leave them with just four receivers under contract for next season.
