Jason Avant ready for fresh start in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) When he became a free agent after last season, Jason Avant wanted to go to Kansas City. He wanted to be reunited with Andy Reid, his longtime coach in Philadelphia, and thought the Chiefs would be the perfect place to continue his career. It finally happened. Just took a detour through Carolina first. The veteran wide receiver signed with the Chiefs this week...

What do the Chiefs need from Avant? Absolutely anything

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The bottom line regarding the Chiefs' recent signing of wide receiver Jason Avant? It certainly can't hurt.

The Jason Avant Factor

Wide receiver Jason Avant signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, November 21. The Chiefs have been in dire need of a solid wideout the entire 2014 season as no receiver on the team has a touchdown. Adding depth at this position provides some hope for a greater passing threat from the Chiefs’ offense. Jason Avant was drafted in 2006 by Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles...

3 in the Kee: Avant signing is safe, not sexy; AFC playoff chase could be nuts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jason Avant can get up to speed quickly, even if his top speed isn't what it used to be.

The former Eagles-turned-Panthers...

Kansas City Chiefs Sign WR Jason Avant

Jason Avant cut after critiquing Panthers’ play-calling

The Carolina Panthers apparently have seen — and heard — enough of Jason Avant. Avant’s agent, Doug Hendrickson, sent out a cryptic tweet on Tuesday, implying the veteran receiver has been given his walking papers. Much better things ahead and role for Jason Avant. Definitely deserves better. — Doug Hendrickson (@DHendrickson41) November 18, 2014   FOX Sports...
