He had a big, arrogant jersey to fill when he took Terrell Owens’ No. 81 in 2006. And although he was no T.O., Avant carved out a nice role for himself as the team’s reliable slot receiver for eight seasons, include a run of at least 50 receptions from 2010-2012.

At times he struggled to find open space, but Avant had more than his share of highlight-reel catches when the ball came his way. Since 2014, he’s been back with Andy Reid in Kansas City, the man who drafted him, and is currently a free agent.
