Markus Wheaton: Let go by Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles released Wheaton on Tuesday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Both Wheaton and Kamar Aiken were among the final receivers cut by the Eagles at the conclusion of the preseason, but Wheaton was re-signed a few days later after Philadelphia ruled out Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) and Mack Hollins (groin) for the regular-season opener. The 27-year-old logged just three snaps (two on offense) in the Week 1 win over the Falcons, with Aiken moving on to the active roster in his stead. Though he has a pair of 40-catch seasons on his resume, Wheaton has suited up in just 14 contests over the past three years, recording only seven receptions during that span. He could resurface in Philadelphia or with another team later in the season, but it's unlikely he would secure a major role in any squad's passing attack.

Eagles' Markus Wheaton: Returning to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton signed with the Eagles on Tuesday.

Wheaton was just released by the Eagles on Sunday as part of their final roster cuts, but with fellow wideout Mack Hollins (groin) ruled out for Thursday's opener against the Falcons, Wheaton was brought back to add some depth to the unit. With Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) also not in line to play Thursday, Wheaton could see a decent number of opportunities in the passing game, but once those two are back healthy, the wideout could find himself off the roster once again.

Markus Wheaton: Released by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton was released by the Eagles on Sunday, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.

The 27-year-old has had a bit of a tumultuous career following his Pittsburgh days. There's no denying his skillset as a wideout in this league, but there's a degree of consistency that has been missing with Wheaton. The Eagles have one of the top wideout corps in the NFC, so Wheaton's release is by no means an indictment on his ability. Don't be surprised if another team takes a shot on Wheaton as the season inches closer.

Eagles' Markus Wheaton: Back at practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports reports.

Wheaton has missed an extended period of time with a strained hamstring, but now returns to practice with two weeks remaining until the regular season. The veteran is not a lock for a roster spot with the Eagles, and will look to play in the preseason finale and show that he can contribute in the passing game. Shelton Gibson and Anthony Mahoungou may lose some snaps with Wheaton back in the picture.

Eagles' Markus Wheaton: Nursing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton is dealing with a strained hamstring, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Wheaton has missed several weeks of practice now due to the hamstring injury, which originally had been kept under the rug as an undisclosed issue. His chances of securing a roster spot have certainly been hampered, while it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return in time for Thursday's preseason tilt against the Browns.
