Eagles waived WR Miles Austin.
31-year-old Austin was wholly ineffective as a rotational receiver in Philadelphia, managing 224 yards and one touchdown on 31 targets. Long out of gas, Austin may struggle to find another team willing to sign him. Mon, Dec 7, 2015 04:12:00 PM

Date:

Eagles declared WR Miles Austin, OT Tanner Hawkinson, G Barrett Jones, QB Thad Lewis, RB Ryan Mathews and DE Cedric Thornton inactive for Week 13 against the Patriots.

Austin is a healthy scratch. Sam Bradford (shoulder), Zach Ertz (concussion), Josh Huff (concussion), Lane Johnson (shoulder), Jason Kelce (knee), Dennis Kelly (ankle), Bennie Logan (knee), Jason Peters (back, ankle) and Walter Thurmond (hamstring, calf) are all active.

Miles Austin caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in the Eagles' Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Austin rotated in with youngsters Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff behind starters Jordan Matthews and Riley Cooper. He should have picked up a big gain, maybe a touchdown, down the seam in the first half, but only stuck one hand out to catch the pass, and it ended up falling harmlessly to the Georgia Dome turf.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Miles Austin "hasn't stood out enough" in Eagles camp.

The 10th-year veteran is no higher than fourth on the depth chart, and could begin the year as low as fifth or sixth. Austin could be an early-season inactive if coach Chip Kelly doesn't see a role for him on special teams. Austin still has fine hands, but has lost a step or three since his prime. He should remain well off the re-draft radar this season. Austin's $2.5 million salary ($1 million guaranteed) will probably ensure his place on the 53-man roster.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly has "been really impressed" by WR Miles Austin.

"Catches the ball extremely well. Intelligent. Knows the subtleties of the exact route running, kind of exactly where to maybe place his elbow to get separation in terms of pushing off the hip and things like that," Kelly said. "And he's imparted that on the younger guys, which I think has really helped us to have that true veteran route runner in there." Hamstring issues have sapped Austin's playmaking ability, but he can serve as a mentor to the Eagles' extremely young receiver corps. Unfortunately, mentorship does not earn fantasy points.

Miles Austin may not end up being active on gamedays.

Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Riley Cooper will almost certainly dress. Seyi Aijrotutu is also expected to be "up" thanks to his special teams prowess. That leaves Austin without a role as a No. 5 wideout who doesn't help on special teams.

Miles Austin's one-year, $2.3 million contract contains $1 million guaranteed.

We've seen Eagles backers freaking out about the Austin signing, but the team didn't give him much money. His signing bonus was $500,000 with a base salary of $1 million and $300,000 tied up in per-game roster bonuses contingent on Austin making the game-day roster. Austin is best suited to a fourth-receiver role at this stage, but the Eagles aren't overpaying. Plus, he'd be a better option to block on the perimeter than Riley Cooper.

The Philadelphia Inquirer confirms Miles Austin was not signed as a Jeremy Maclin replacement.

Austin's one-year, $2.3 million contract is backup-type money. In fact, we wouldn't even consider him a stone lock to make the final roster. Austin projects as the No. 4 receiver right now and the Eagles are expected to use a priority draft pick on a wideout. It's hard to carry a No. 5 receiver that doesn't play on special teams.

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.

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.
Mon, Mar 30, 2015 10:11:00 AM

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.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 06:22:00 PM

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.
