Eagles Sign Miles Austin to a One-Year, $2.3 Million Deal
The signing, reportedly a one-year, $2.3 million contract with another $700,000 available through incentives.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound wide out is a nine-year veteran of the NFL, playing most of his career with Dallas before playing last year with the Browns. He registered 47 catches, 568 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games in 2014. His best season came in 2009 in Dallas, when he made 81 grabs for 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Numerous hamstring injuries have limited Austin since his breakout season in 2009, he hasn't been a difference-making player in a half-decade. Austin joins Jordan Matthews, Riley Cooper and Josh Huff at wide out, and if healthy the soon to be 31-year old could fill a possession receiver role for the Eagles this season.
