Avery traded to Philadelphia Eagles

Former Grenada High School standout Genard Avery received word Monday that he had been traded from the Cleveland Browns to the Philadelpia Eagles. Avery had a standout rookie season for the Browns, but playing time slipped this season with a defensive system change.
“I’m excited about this new opportunity God has sent my way,” Avery said. “I’m looking forward to helping the Eagles anyway I can.”
