PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Eagles released wide receiver Jason Avant on Tuesday.

Avant played in 16 games this past season with the Eagles, posting 38 catches for 447 yards and two touchdowns.

"In the year I spent with Jason, he was unbelievable in terms of his work ethic and his selfless nature," said Eagles coach Chip Kelly. "He was a great teammate. We know he will have a chance to sign with another team and by releasing him now, he will have a full offseason to make the necessary adjustments. I had a chance to speak with him today and he handled himself like the true professional he is."

The eight-year veteran has spent his entire career with Philadelphia. The University of Michigan product was selected by the Eagles in the fourth round of the 2006 draft.

He ranks 11th in Eagles history with 297 receptions for 3,646 yards and 12 touchdowns.
