According to Sheil Kapadia of Philly Mag, Eagles WR Jason Avant, who is coming off of a career-high 53 catch season, could be on the hot seat and might even lose out to another receiver for a roster spot this season. Avant, 30, will be competing with names such as Arrelious Been, Russell Shepard, Riley Cooper, Damaris Johnson and Clay Harbor just to name a few. It’s plausible that if one of those five puts on a better performance in training camp, Avant could be a camp causality. Under Chip Kelly’s new offense, the tight end position is a key cog that keeps the passing game moving, which is bad news for the receivers as is. It’s possible the lower tier of receivers see very few snaps if tight ends are on the field so often. Even if Avant’s time is drawing to an end in Philadelphia, his skill set and veteran presence would make him very attractive for a club looking to add a skilled receiver to the depth chart during camp.
