Panthers | Jason Avant clashed with Chip Kelly

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:27:04 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant said he did not approve of his standing with head coach Chip Kelly last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Avant said he "mostly ran clear-out routes. ... When it came to certain things, we butted heads sometimes -- route running and route technique. So I knew I didn't fit his system."

Fantasy Tip: Avant wasn't the field-stretching type of slot receiver Kelly likes to use. In Carolina, the vet won't be much more than a bye-week replacement type but will have several big games. Good luck figuring out when to play him.

Panthers | Jason Avant helping the receiving corps

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:01:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant has earned praise form head coach Ron Rivera for the leadership he has shown to WR Kelvin Benjamin and the team's other receivers. "Jason does things exactly the way you want them he's a pro," Rivera said. "In all honesty, the thought was that if you could have a couple of veteran guys who have been there and done that around a Kelvin Benjamin, that could be very good for him. And Jason has not just been good for Benjamin, he's been good for a whole lot of guys."

Panthers | Jason Avant signs

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:34:49 -0700

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) to an undisclosed one-year deal Monday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Avant is more of a complementary wide receiving piece, but he'll effectively be Carolina's No. 2 wideout opposite Jerricho Cotchery. The Panthers receivers won't have much time to familiarize themselves with Cam Newton (ankle) this offseason, either. Avant will probably go undrafted in most standard leagues.
