Eagles Release Jason Avant

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles have released veteran wide receiver Jason Avant.

The Eagles have released veteran wide receiver Jason Avant. The release of Avant was expected as he as was due a $1M roster bonus on March 15th. Also as expected, the Eagles had nothing but respect for Avant as both a player and a person during his 8 year tenure with the team:

Avant saw a significant increase in playing time in 2013 as the primary slot receiver, but a decrease in production, his 38 catches, 447 yards and 2 TDs were his lowest totals since 2008. Coupled with the re-signings of Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin and the return of Arrelious Benn, Avant was deemed expendable. A highly respected leader in the locker room and a tireless blocker, Avant will be best remembered for his great hands (even in the pre-season).
