The Eagles acquired Avery from the Browns last October in exchange for a 4th-round pick. He had 4 1/2 sacks as a rookie 5th-round pick for the Browns in 2018 but had played only five reps on defense in the Browns’ first seven games last year when Cleveland shipped him to the Eagles. Avery played only 33 snaps on defense in eight games with the Eagles along with 147 snaps on special teams, but the Eagles had hoped to find a role for him this preseason.
