Miles Austin: Released by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles have released Austin, philly.com reports.

Austin, who was inactive Sunday against the Patriots, caught 13 passes for 224 yards and a TD in 11 games for the Eagles this season. The 31-year-old will now look to catch on with a team in need of wideout depth down the stretch.

Eagles' Miles Austin: Inactive in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin was inactive in Sunday's 35-28 win over the Patriots.

This was the first time Austin was among the Eagles' inactives all season. After the team signed wide receiver Jonathan Krause during the week, Krause was active and had a six-yard catch against his former team, and head coach Chip Kelly was effusive in his praise of Krause's work ethic and ability. Krause's arrival and success might spell the end of Austin's productive time in Philadelphia, especially considering Krause is significantly younger than Austin, a veteran.

Eagles' Miles Austin: Austin silenced in big loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin dropped his only target of the game in Sunday's 45-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

After a surprisingly hot start to the season, Austin has one catch in the Eagles' past three games. With tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek contributing more in the air, and the Eagles' offense continuing to struggle in terms of finding a rhythm, Austin's production has plummeted. He also had problems with dropping passes in the Eagles' loss to the Dolphins, and has seen his role in the offense minimized in recent weeks.

Eagles' Miles Austin: Crucial miss in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin didn't catch a pass despite seeing a number of targets in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Dolphins.

After an unexpected strong start to the season, Austin has hampered the Eagles' offense in recent weeks, no more than when he failed to haul in a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter against the Dolphins. He continues to see plenty of targets, from both Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, but Austin's ability to turn those targets into production has wavered, and, on Sunday, disappeared entirely. With Bradford's status in question for Week 11, Austin's value is extremely limited against Tampa Bay.

Eagles' Miles Austin: One Catch In Dallas Return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught one pass for 27 yards in Sunday's 33-27 win over the Cowboys.

Before the Eagles' bye week, Austin was excelling and fellow wide receiver Jordan Matthews couldn't catch a pass. In the Eagles' first game after the week off, however, the script was reversed. Austin caught just one of three targets, and Matthews was the game-breaking wideout the Eagles expect him to be. With quarterback Sam Bradford involving running backs and tight ends in the passing game pretty heavily, Austin's role will probably be limited at best going forward.

Eagles' Miles Austin: Four catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught four balls for 52 yards in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Panthers.

On a night filled with Eagles wideouts dropping quarterback Sam Bradford's passes, Austin saved his for the Eagles' last chance of a game-tying drive. Otherwise, however, Austin was the team's leading receiver all night long, an intriguing heel-turn for the veteran wideout. The Eagles' offense couldn't find much of a rhythm through the air against Carolina, but if Bradford and the offense can find consistency after the bye week, Austin could be an intriguing deep-league play.

Eagles' Miles Austin: Another big catch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught three passes for 60 yards in Monday's 27-7 win over the Giants.

Austin continues to see plenty of targets from quarterback Sam Bradford in a strange-but-true late-career renaissance. Bradford's play was errant again on Monday night, but Austin still managed to set a season-high in yards. The veteran wideout is little more than a reach for any team's starting lineup, but with a lack of production from fellow wide receivers Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor, Austin will likely continue to have balls thrown his way, at least in the immediate future.

Eagles wide receiver Miles Austin caught two passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles wide receiver Miles Austin caught two passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington.

Austin set a season-high in yards and scored his first touchdown of the year as quarterback Sam Bradford and the Eagles' offense finally clicked for a brief stretch in the second half.

Despite limited production, Bradford has consistently targeted Austin on deep balls in the first four games, likely because of ideal coverage matchups. If Bradford can build on his best performance of the year, Austin could theoretically turn into a deep-bench option at wide receiver.

Eagles announce one-year deal with WR Miles Austin
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Eagles announced Tuesday that they have signed wide receiver Miles Austin to a one-year contract. The deal was reported Monday and became official Tuesday after Austin, who caught 47 passes for 568 yards with two touchdowns in 2014, passed his physical.

"It just seemed like it was the right thing to do," Austin said on a conference call, per ESPN.. "The team’s already great, obviously, without me. I just figured it was something I wanted to be a part of and join in and go in, full swing, and be a part of it. I grew up in Jersey, so that was part of the decision process."

Austin said the "opportunity to win" was the primary factor that led to him signing with the Eagles. His former Cowboys teammate DeMarco Murray also joined the team this offseason.

"Obviously, me and DeMarco are really close," Austin said. "So I was in communication with him as a friend when he was figuring out what he was doing in his process of being a free agent. Me and him, we were talking back and forth when he signed up with Philly. He was telling me how he experienced coming in and speaking with the coaches. It kind of reaffirmed all the positive thoughts I already had."

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Wide receiver Miles Austin has agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Eagles on Monday, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The deal could be worth up to $3 million with incentives included. Austin must pass a physical before the deal is finalized.

After spending eight seasons with the Cowboys, Austin joined the Browns in 2014. In 12 games played last year, he hauled in 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns. Over his nine-year career, the 30-year-old has totaled 348 receptions for 5,049 yards and 36 touchdowns.

Report: WR Miles Austin set to sign with Eagles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Veteran wide receiver Miles Austin is set to meet with the Eagles this week, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. 

Rapoport added Austin will sign when he meets with the Eagles, as long as his physical goes well, a source said.

The 30-year-old Austin appeared in 12 games (11 starts) for the Browns last season before being placed on injured reserve with a kidney injury. Austin totaled 47 receptions for 568 yards and two touchdowns.

Browns extremely thin -- and short -- at wide receiver
by Larry Hartstein |

With wideout Josh Gordon facing a one-year suspension, the Browns are dangerously thin at receiver entering 2015. ESPN.com notes the Browns have two returning slot receivers in Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel and "an undersized situational receiver" in 5-10 Travis Benjamin.

Miles Austin is scheduled for unrestricted free agency after catching 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games. Tight end Jordan Cameron also is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Hawkins, a 5-7, 180-pounder, led the team with 63 grabs for 824 yards, with two touchdowns. Cleveland failed to add a wideout in last year's draft but almost certainly must address the position in the 2015 draft.

Contingent of Browns pitch in offensively in Week 11
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards. Not so proficient was wideout Miles Austin, who dropped two critical passes, one of which he bobbled into an interception down the stretch. Miles finished with three catches for 31 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.
