Eagles Sign Miles Austin to One-Year Deal

(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.

Browns Sign WR Miles Austin

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BEREA, Ohio) -- Receiver Miles Austin agreed to terms with the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Thursday.

Austin provides the Browns with depth, which could be needed if star receiver Josh Gordon is suspended.

The 29-year-old Austin is a two-time Pro Bowler but is coming of an injury-filled season during which he caught 24 balls for 244 yards.

For his eight-year NFL career, Austin has 301 catches for 4,481 yards and 34 touchdowns.

The Browns agreed to terms with receiver Earl Bennett Thursday. He and Austin join Greg Little, Andrew Hawkins, Nate Burleson and Travis Benjamin as part of the Browns' receiving corps.

Cowboy's Miles Austin to Miss Rest Of Preseason

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(DALLAS) – The Dallas Cowboys will be without their top wide receiver for the rest of the preseason.

Dallas owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he does not expect wideout Miles Austin to play in the final two preseason games as he recovers from a strained hamstring.

The Cowboys want to make sure Austin is ready to go for the first regular season game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

“The risks of him getting out there and really competing at this time would I think be overruled (by) the game we have for him being completely healthy in New York,” Jones said on KRLD-FM.  "Now, I'm sure he'd be the first to tell you he could go if we were playing New York tonight, and we will have him as ready as he can be for that. So that's the plan."

Austin was bothered by hamstring injuries last year and missed six games.

The news only adds to the concern about the Cowboy’s receiving unit, as tight end Jason Witten and fellow wide receiver Dez Bryant are dealing with injuries that could keep them out of the season opener.
