New England Patriots: Jason Avant
Avant, who was recently released by the Eagles, has played his entire eight-year career in Philadelphia after being selected in the fourth round of the 2006 draft out of Michigan.
He has career totals of 297 catches for 3,646 yards, with 38 catches for 447 yards and two touchdowns last season. He's regarded as having standout hands, though he is not an explosive athlete at this stage of his career.
It's the fourth documented visit for the team in free agency, and the second wide receiver, as former Panther Brandon LaFell also was in on Wednesday.
Colleague Mike Reiss previously explored the fit for Avant in two posts on ESPNBoston.com (Free-agent fit: Wide receiver and Exploring Jason Avant as a possible fit).
