The Carolina Panthers will keep six wide receivers with WRs Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Brenton Bersin, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Tavarres King as the projected members of the 53-man roster. The team could still look to pick up a receiver or kick returner off waivers after the final roster cuts Saturday, Aug. 30.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) doesn't have a timetable for his return after bruising his left knee, but he is expected to be back in days, not weeks. Head coach Ron Rivera said Benjamin should be back before the end of training camp Aug. 12. So far in camp, Benjamin has looked really good and hasn't dropped a pass during team drills while running with the first-team offense. WR Jason Avant moved up to the first-team offense Monday, July 28, with Benjamin out.
Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's injury isn't serious, but he could miss some valuable time with the starters in camp, especially since he's a rookie. Don't expect too much of Benjamin in his first year in an offense that doesn't have many other legitimate receiving threats.

Carolina Panthers WR Jason Avant likely will serve as the No. 3 wide receiver this upcoming season.

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.

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."

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.

The Carolina Panthers are scheduled to meet with free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) Monday, April 7.

Free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) might still be in the plans for the Kansas City Chiefs, but it is likely they will not re-visit bringing him in until after the NFL Draft.
Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:24:04 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles), according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: It would make sense, as head coach Andy Reid is more than familiar with Avant from their days together with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Wed, 05 Mar 2014 12:03:48 -0800
Free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) said he believes he could still play in the NFL and hopes to sign with a team before the start of free agency.
