News: The Chiefs have signed Avant to help a beleaguered and injury-prone group of wide receivers. Impact: The move reunites Avant with Andy Reid, his longtime coach in Philadelphia. Kansas City cleared roster space by placing wide receiver A.J. Jenkins on injured reserve on Friday. Avant was drafted by Reid's Eagles and spent his first eight seasons there before signing with Carolina in the offseason. He was the Panthers' third receiver and caught 21 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown before getting released this week. (STATS, 6:52pm)

News: Avant will reportedly sign with the Chiefs, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: Avant was released by the Panthers on Tuesday, which may have been related to his comments about the Panthers' play-calling following the team's loss to the Falcons. He will join a Chiefs team devoid of depth at wide receiver, with Frankie Hammond currently listed as the team's second receiver. Avant will likely need a little time to learn the playbook, but should receive significant playing time once he figures it out.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant was released by the Panthers on Tuesday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Avant's release may at least in part be due to comments he made about the Panthers' play-calling following Sunday's loss to the Panthers, but head coach Ron Rivera said the move was made in order to get the team's young receivers more snaps. In either case, Avant is now a free agent and will be free to sign with any team.(RotoWire, )
