(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) -- The Philadelphia Eagles have signed wide receiver Miles Austin to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network.

The deal is worth $2.3 million, with an opportunity to earn $700,000 in incentives, according to Ian Rappaport of NFL Network.

Austin, 30, played 12 games last season for the Cleveland Browns, where he caught 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns. 

Injuries have hampered the receiver over the past four seasons as he has missed 15 games due to various ailments.

The move is a bit of a homecoming for Austin, who is a native of New Jersey and alumnus of Monmouth University.

If Austin makes the final roster, he is expected to serve as the backup to Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, and Riley Cooper.
