More good news on the Eagles restricted free agent front. On the heels of Leonard Weaver‘s new contract last week, the Birds have also locked up wide receiver Jason Avant with a 5-year deal.
Avant, along with starters DeSean and Maclin, give the offense its best trio of pass catchers in a long time. Jason’s silky smooth hands, toughness in the slot and penchant for making clutch grabs all contributed to him becoming a fan, and front office favorite.
Well, the offense is pretty much set. Now it’s time to focus on the other side of the ball. I would expect the upcoming April draft to be all about defense.
