Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer doesn’t believe wide receiver Jason Avant will be back with the Eagles in 2014.
Speaking of leaders, the Eagles are expected to lose one in Jason Avant. The eight-year veteran’s presence was perhaps most felt in the receiver room, especially after long-time assistant coach David Culley left and followed Andy Reid to Kansas City. Many of the receivers looked at Culley as a father figure and respected him immensely. Avant helped fill that void and kept the group together after videotape of Riley Cooper using a racial slur surfaced in August.
Avant still has one more year left on his current contract, but it looks like the Eagles may want to reshape their receiving corp a little this offseason.
