A few weeks back, the Kansas City Chiefs were linked as a team that may have interest in wide receiver Jason Avant.
Nothing has come of the rumors and it’s unlikely anything will, at least not until after the 2014 NFL Draft – this according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher.
It could happen (signing Avant) but my sense is the Chiefs will wait to see what they get from the draft before they would make that move. He will turn 31 later this month and you always have to wonder about receivers when they get to that age.
Avant of course spent a handful of seasons with Andy Reid as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, so the two do have some lengthy history which is probably why Avant’s name has even been brought up.
It’s not likely Avant will cost much, so it’s possible they could bring him in as a training camp invite assuming he doesn’t garner much interest elsewhere, even if the Chiefs opt to draft a wide receiver.
