The Eagles have signed wide receiver Miles Austin to a one-year deal worth $2.3 million, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Austin turns 31 in June. He appeared in 12 games with the Cleveland Browns last season and finished with 47 catches for 568 yards and two touchdowns. He was placed on injured reserve in December because of a kidney injury.

Prior to joining the Browns in 2014, Austin spent the previous seven seasons as a member of the Cowboys’ receiving corps. His best campaign came in 2009 when he racked up 81 catches for 1,320 yards and 11 scores. Hamstring injuries kept him out of the lineup for parts of the 2011 and ’13 seasons. He was released by Dallas in March of ’14 in a cost-cutting move.

Note: We have started a new thread for Sunday’s buzz.

The legal tampering period is underway. Clubs are permitted to enter into contract negotiations with the representatives of players who will become free agents on March 10. Deals cannot become official until 4 p.m. Tuesday, but there will be plenty of leaks between now and then.

The Eagles are expected to be active. They have needs at the corner, safety and outside linebacker positions, and could bring in a veteran running back after dealing LeSean McCoy to Buffalo this week. There’s also the issue  of their own free agents. They have been unable to strike a deal with Jeremy Maclin and now must compete with other teams as they try to negotiate a contract extension. They have decisions to make with players like Mark Sanchez and Brandon Graham as well.

Lots to keep track of. This is the place to keep up with it all. We’ll continue to update this post with all the latest rumors and news. Read more »
