- Caplan adds that the move will likely happen before his $1 million roster bonus is due on March15.
Avant, 30, has one year remaining on his five-year, $14.75 million contract and is set to make $2.25 million for the 2014 season. He carries a cap figure of $3.9 million, however, the Eagles could free up $3.25 million in space by cutting him loose.
There has been a lot of talk that Avant was likely to be the odd man out in Philadelphia, and the fact that they’ve already re-signed Riley Cooper while trying to lock up Jeremy Maclin is a pretty good indication that they won’t be paying him that kind of money.
In 2013, he totaled 28 receptions for 447 yards receiving and two touchdowns over the course of 16 games.
