Eagles receiver Jason Avant, a restricted free agent with a second-round tender, has finagled a strong deal. As Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted earlier today, Avant signed a five-year, $18 million deal, with $8 million guaranteed.
A league source tells us that Avant will receive $7 million of that money in 2010.
Solid pay for a guy who caught only 41 passes for 587 yards and three touchdowns last year.
