The Chiefs have signed Avant to help a beleaguered and injury-prone group of wide receivers.

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.

The Philadelphia Eagles have released wide receiver Jason Avant.

The Eagles cut ties with Avant on Tuesday. He played his first eight NFL seasons in Philadelphia and ranks 11th in team history with 297 receptions for 3,646 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was drafted in the fourth round in 2006 from the University of Michigan.
