Three’s A Crowd So Eagles Cut Jason Avant

By Rachel Wold

Cutting Avant, who was drafted by the Eagles in 2006, saves $3.9 million against their salary cap. Avant doesn’t appear to be the Eagles main priority as they have younger fish to feed in WR’s Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper. DeSean Jackson also is another hungry mouth as the team negotiates with him.
