    Eagles | Avant trying to make an impression
    Fri, 2 Jun 2006 05:43:27 -0700

    Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jason Avant is wearing WR Terrell Owens old number, No. 81. Today, as Owens begins his first Dallas Cowboys minicamp, Avant will be winding up a series of Eagles sessions for rookies and younger veterans. It's been an important time, Avant said, an opportunity to learn the Eagles' version of the West Coast offense along with other newcomers, while they have the coaches' undivided attention. Full-squad workouts begin Monday, June 5. Avant has created a positive impression in his early Eagles days, but neither Avant nor anyone else on the roster is likely to take the place of Owens. Avant, 6 foot, is listed at 212 but said this week he's around 206 tightly muscled pounds. He has said he didn't ask for Owens' jersey - "that was the number they gave me,' he said at the first minicamp. But Avant probably could have asked for something lower-profile, if he was worried about it. He doesn't seem too concerned.

    Not likely that Philly was going to retire T-Ho's number on put him in their ring of honor!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I highly doubt anyone would put T-Ho in their ring of honor.
