That would be a "Yikes!" moment for me if I were Avant.
Jason Avant (# 81) is in his 8th year now out of Michigan...6-0, 212, he was drafted in the 4th round by the Eagles in 2006... He's nearing the end of a fairly lucrative contact extension, and may be considered expendable if Chip Kelly doesn't "feel" him as a leader of the offense at the slot-receiver position...

This just in: Being DeSean Jackson? It’s a good gig if you can get it. Has anyone ever mentioned that it must be pretty damn awesome to enjoy the many fringe benefits that go along with being an NFL player?

The Eagles were originally linked to having interest in Geno Smith and E.J. Manuel, but they ended up passing on both of them as they filled other important positions before making the plunge at quarterback.... Read more

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly says he is not in a rush to name a starting quarterback (Credit: AP Photo)
If you are hoping to know the Philadelphia Eagles week one starter anytime soon, you are in for a long wait. Today, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly says he is in no hurry to name a starting quarterback. While Michael Vick should have the inside track for the starting...
It's an all too familiar scenario for the Eagles secondary coaches in recent years... a once-great but now injured veteran safety is signed on a low-risk high-reward contract ...and it ends up going nowhere.
