Eagles WR Jason Avant, TE Clary Harbor Not Switching To Defensive Side
The latest example that Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly might prepare his team a little different than most: Wide receiver Jason Avant and tight end Clay Harbor both took snaps on the defensive side of the ball during organized team activities last week.
But it's not going to be a permanent change. Harbor says he was tried out just in case of emergency.
"I'm a tight end, and for emergency situations, and just versatility purposes, for me, I'm learning (outside linebacker)," Harbor told the Philadelphia Inquirer over the weekend.
Avant took some snaps with defensive backs, but he's not changing positions either. Both players could be on the roster bubble heading into training camp, and a little position versatility never hurts your chances of making the final 53-man roster.
"It's one of those things that I work hard, and whatever that may be, and whatever the team wants me to do, I'll do it," Avant said.
