TE Clay Harbor and WR Jason Avant have both spent time at different positions during practice this week, examples of HC Chip Kelly's emphasis on versatility and perhaps a way to add value to two players who are not guaranteed to make the final roster. Harbor has worked with outside linebacker, while Avant tried defensive back. It should be noted that neither player is changing positions, but rather an occasional experiment to see what both players can do. Reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer
"I'm a tight end, for emergency situations, versatility purposes, for me, I'm learning something," Harbor said "You have 53 guys on the roster, you have  guys that dress. ..." Harbor then stressed again, "I'm still a tight end -- I'm not switching positions. ..." Avant, 30, has played seven seasons and been a fixture in the Eagles’ offense. He did not view being asked to do something out of the ordinary as an indication of an uncertain future. "It's one of those things I work hard, and whatever that may be, and whatever the team wants me to do, I'll do it," Avant said. "Whatever that is, special teams, offense, whatever it may bring. I'm going to do it the best I can. I don't necessarily think it's a clouded future. I think it's an honor, in any way, for any coach to think you can do other things. ..." Unless it's actually a sign the thing you used to do is no longer going to be the thing you do going forward. ... Stay tuned.
