Eagles agreed to terms with WR Miles Austin, formerly of the Browns, on a one-year, $2.3 million contract.
Another $700,000 is available through incentives. We'd have to think there's little guaranteed money here, but who knows what coach Chip Kelly sees in Austin. The soon-to-be 31-year-old posted a pedestrian 47-568-3 line across 15 games for Cleveland last season and has no separation skills after numerous hamstring injuries. He'll likely back up all three spots in Philly. Mar 30 - 5:54 PM

Sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport the Eagles will sign free agent WR Miles Austin this week.

It appears all Austin has to do is pass a physical when he arrives in Philly and the deal will be done. The former Cowboy enjoyed a bit of a bounce-back campaign with the Browns last year, posting a 47-568-3 line in 12 games. But it's an underwhelming signing as he turns 31 in June, had no market in free agency, is an annual injury risk and hasn't been a difference-maker in a half-decade. Expect Austin to slide in as cheap depth behind Jordan Matthews, blocker Riley Cooper and Josh Huff. This signing won't stop Chip Kelly from prioritizing the wideout position in the draft.

Free agent WR Miles Austin is scheduled to visit the Eagles this week.

The Eagles are certainly in need of wideout help with ineffective Riley Cooper and unproven Josh Huff currently penciled as bookends to slot man Jordan Matthews. But Austin, who hasn't garnered even a whiff of interest in free agency, would be an underwhelming addition. He turns 31 in June, has missed 15 games over the last four years and hasn't been a difference-maker since 2010. At best, Austin is a No. 4 wideout at this point in his career.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer expects the Browns to re-sign free agent Miles Austin.

Austin filled a possession receiver role for Cleveland in 2014, posting a 47/568/2 line in 12 games prior to landing on I.R. With Josh Gordon suspended for 2015, Austin could be brought back as veteran depth. The Browns need to aggressively upgrde at receiver this offseason.

Browns placed WR Miles Austin on injured reserve with a kidney injury, ending his season.

He remains in the hospital. It's a tough blow for Austin, who was enjoying a bounce-back season for Cleveland. He'd appeared in all 12 games and managed to avoid injury to his balky hamstrings, posting a 47-568-2 line after an injury-riddled 2013 in Dallas. Austin is on a one-year deal. 31 next June, Austin has earned another contract, but he's no longer a game-breaker on the outside.

Miles Austin (kidney) will remain hospitalized for a third night Tuesday.

The Browns still haven't revealed the exact nature of Austin's injury, but insist his continued hospitalization is "precautionary." Austin is stuck in Buffalo, where the Browns lost on Sunday. It's extremely unlikely that he suits up for Week 14.

Miles Austin will spend another night in a Buffalo hospital with a kidney injury.

Austin was hurt in Sunday's loss to the Bills and will stay a second night as a precaution. The 30-year-old has a 47-568-2 line this season and has played in every game.

Browns WR Miles Austin has a kidney injury and will be kept overnight at a Buffalo hospital.

Austin sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Bills. Before going down, he went 7-86-0 on nine targets.

Miles Austin was hospitalized with abdominal pain following Cleveland's Week 13 loss to the Bills.

Details are scarce, including whether Austin's pain was the result of an injury he suffered against Buffalo. Austin was Cleveland's leading receiver on Sunday, catching 7-of-9 targets for 86 yards. He took a colossal hit from three defenders when making an ill-advised attempt at a hurdle, but was never announced with an injury. His status will be updated in the next 24 hours.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:28:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 6-of-8 targets for 64 yards in the Browns' Week 12 win over the Falcons.

The catches were Austin's most since Week 3. Increased production isn't going to be in the cards for Austin with Josh Gordon back in the fold. He's a dubious hold in 14-team leagues.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:36:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 3-of-8 targets for 31 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

He also had a crucial third-down drop. Devoid of playmaking ability at this stage of his career, Austin is just a possession receiver best left on fantasy football waiver wires. He will crash down the depth chart when the Browns get back Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, which is expected in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 06:25:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 5-of-6 targets for 48 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

The Browns' de facto No. 1 receiver in the absence of Andrew Hawkins (knee/thigh), Austin had his first five-catch performance since Week 3. Austin has done exactly what the Browns paid him to do, making chain-moving catches while keeping his famously-troublesome hamstrings healthy. But he has only 31 catches through nine games, and is bracing for the return of Josh Gordon. Austin can be left on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 12:27:00 AM

Miles Austin caught 3-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Browns' Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

Austin made some critical catches for first downs, but his playmaking ability evaporated years ago. He isn't worth a roster spot in 14-team leagues. Josh Gordon will return in Week 12 to hog targets.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 05:29:00 PM

Miles Austin caught two passes for 34 yards in Week 8.

Austin is a late-career possession receiver with WR5 value in fantasy.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 08:08:00 PM

Miles Austin secured 3-of-8 targets for 53 yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Jaguars.

He finished second on the team in targets behind Andrew Hawkins' nine. Austin has been a somewhat useful role player in Cleveland's run-first attack, but offers zero fantasy upside. He's, at best, a WR5 in PPR leagues.
