Jason Avant sounds like a person of high character,according to this report..

 

(" Jason Avant is an avid Scrabble player.[8] During Chris Berman's "Fastest Three Minutes" he referred to him as Jason "You Can't Always Get What" Avant.[9] Avant and his wife, Stacy, live in Clementon, New Jersey. He is the son of Jerry Avant and Claudette Patrick. His brother, Edwon Simmons, was a baseball player, who was drafted by Baltimore Orioles and was a safety at San Diego State. He is now a talent scout for a sports agency in Chicago.[10]

Avant is a Christian. Avant has spoken about his faith saying "I devoted my life to Jesus Christ on May 4, 2003. It was a day when, if you can imagine it, your eyes are opened to a whole different light. On that day, I had a consciousness of God that I never really had before. It’s sort of like being in darkness, but you finally start to see. I realized that day that all of the stuff that I learned growing up was backwards, according to the Scripture. It was the day that changed my life. I started realizing that I had a purpose, and every thought from that day on went through a filter of Jesus Christ first. Before I can make a decision I have to think, ʻWould it be pleasing to God?’".)

@jjones9: The Panthers now have what they believe to be two strong veteran WRs in the locker room. It's clear what they wanted to do in free agency

Well...We may not have the bestest WR corp. in the league. But if we can fill it out with a 1-2 round WR, we may be good to go. We are not going to set the world on fire, but, our drops should diminish. That alone is worth the price of admittance.

Fill out the roster in FA, then draft talent. Gman has been true to his word so far. I can live with that.

Good signing right here. If we get some young WR's in the draft, a vet like Avant will be key.  Plus, old dude catches everything thrown his way.  Will be a great WR to have out there on 3rd downs.

Cotchery was a veteran presence. Now we have 2 veteran presences at WR

So do we still double dip or nah...

In my opinion a group of the following would be fun to watch...

1. Cooks, Avant

2. Cotchery, Latimer, King

Slot: Underwood

Love it.  Cotchery and Avant will be great mentors for the young studs we (hopefully) take in the draft.
