Although the Eagles didn’t make a splash in free agency over the weekend, it seems their main goal right now is bringing back the players they want that are already in their system. After signing Leonard Weaver to a new deal on Friday, the Eagles have now signed Jason Avant to a 5-year contract.
Avant typically doesn’t find himself in the spotlight because of the explosive plays of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin; however, anyone that follows this team knows it was important for the Eagles to bring him back. Avant has clutch hands and always seems to get open on third downs and in the middle of the field.
I’m glad to see that the two sides were able to reach a deal and that Jason Avant will stay with this team for a long time.
