Jason Avant

Avant was recently cut by the Eagles because as the fourth wide receiver, he was owed $4 million dollars. There hasn’t been much interest for the 30 year old veteran, so he shouldn’t command an expensive price tag. The Cowboys need depth at WR, and I think Avant would fit. He does not have much speed, but he has reliable hands and good route running ability. In addition, Avant was known for being a strong locker room presence in Philadelphia. However the biggest reason I think we should pick up Avant is because he does not have an injury history. Avant can come in to Dallas as a number 3 or 4 wide receiver and provide veteran leadership. If we need him to, he can play on the outside and can provide great depth behind Dez and Terrance Williams.
