Evans might be best known for being the starting fullback for the 1998 Minnesota Vikings which scored the most points by a team (556) in a season in NFL history. He played the fullback position, which required him to block, catch the ball out of the back field, and every once in a while carry the ball.
His best year statistically was his first with the Baltimore Ravens in 1999. He had 38 carries for 134 yards and 32 receptions for 235 yards and a touchdown. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Ravens in 2000. Around the NFL he was considered among the top in the league at his position.
After a record breaking year in 1998, Brian Billick was given the head coaching job of the Baltimore Ravens. A few players, including Chuck Evans, decided to follow him. In 1999, Evans had his most productive year offensively, and the newly coached team finished with an 8-8 record. Evans only participated in one game in the 2000 season, but earned a ring as they went on to win Super Bowl XXXV.
