The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a contract with free agent wide receiver Miles Austin, according to multiple reports. It is a one-year deal with a base salary of $2.3 million with an additional $750 thousand in incentives.
Austin, who will turn 31 in July, has been in the league for nine seasons, the majority of them being with the Dallas Cowboys. During his career Austin has recorded 348 receptions for 5,049 yards and 36 touchdowns. His most productive season came in 2009 when he was a member of the Cowboys. He hauled in 81 receptions for 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had a slight drop off the following year, but was still selected to the Pro-Bowl in 2010.
He has had injury problems since then, most of them dealing with a hamstring injury. Once Dez Bryant emerged as a top receiver for the Cowboys, Austin became a cap casualty and ended up signing with the Cleveland Browns for the 2014 season.
Austin started his one season off with the Browns missing the first four games of the season with a kidney injury. He ended the season with 47 receptions for 568 yards and two touchdowns.Read more... Join the Conversation...
