KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs signed veteran Jason Avant on Friday to help a beleaguered and injury-prone group of wide receivers, reuniting him with Andy Reid, his longtime coach in Philadelphia.
Kansas City cleared roster space by placing A.J. Jenkins on injured reserve.
Avant was drafted by the Eagles and spent his first eight seasons there - seven of them with Reid - 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.
