Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant had a one-handed catch against Tampa Bay Sunday that was a potential play of the year candidate.
You would think Avant would be feeling himself and the catch he made, but according to the Newark Star-Ledger, Avant is not impressed at with the catch, just the win.
“Impressed? I was excited to make the play,” Avant said of the second-quarter grab in the Eagles’ 23-21 victory over the Bucs. “I don’t like to say that about myself. You just move onto the next play.”
Avant stated he’s made better catches than that one. He eventually came around and stated that the catch is up there with some of his better receptions ever.
“It’s up there,” he said. “Some of the ones where I got banged around are probably more meaningful to you. When you get hit and hold onto the ball, those are a lot harder for me. Moments are more important as well, like some of the catches you had when we were going to the NFC Championship.”
