Jason Avant turns non-descript career into great career with single catch

Jim McIsaac

How does a receiver stay in the league for seven years without a high level of production? With catches like this one.

Jason Avant has seen a lot during his career in Philadelphia. He has played alongside receivers and tight ends that have had more production, like Reggie Brown, Kevin Curtis, Brent Celek, L.J. Smith, DeSean Jackson, and Jeremy Maclin. But Avant has been a constant in Philadelphia, despite the fact that the 29-year-old's career-high for yards in a season is only 679. How does Avant stick around for seven years?

Eagles fans won't forget Avant when he's gone (presumably in another 15 years), and now regular NFL fans can remember him too.
