The Carolina Panthers continued signing Free agent Wide Receivers, as they signed Jason Avant, the former Philadelphia Eagle, to a one year contract Monday. Terms were not disclosed. He becomes the third free agent receiver to sign with the Panthers, joining former Pittsburgh Steeler red-zone specialist, Jerricho Crotchery, and former Tampa Bay wideout Tiquan Underwood. Avant 6’2″, 210 pounds, turns 31 in two weeks and was released from the Eagles in a salary cap move. His production went down a bit this year for new Head Coach, Chip Kelly, after having some stellar seasons under former Eagle Coach, Andy Reid.
