News: Austin is joining the Philadelphia Eagles on a 1-year contract.
Impact: The undrafted receiver spent eight seasons with the Cowboys before playing for the Browns last season, putting up 568 yards and scoring two touchdowns in Cleveland's struggling offense. Austin, 30, had a breakout season in 2009, when he scored 11 touchdowns and had 1,320 yards.

News: The Eagles have signed Austin (kidney) to a one-year contract, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Per the report, Austin's deal with the Eagles is worth $2.3 million, with the potential for him to earn an additional $700,000 in incentives. Austin caught 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns with the Browns this past season, before missing the team's final four games with a kidney injury. Austin -- who turns 31 in June -- has missed 15 games over the past four seasons due to injuries, but assuming he can stay on the field, he'll provide added depth and experience to an Eagles wideout corps that bid adieu to starter Jeremy Maclin in free agency. Austin is thus in line to jostle with the likes of Riley Cooper, Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff for slotting on the team's 2015 depth chart at the position.

News: The Eagles plan to sign Austin (kidney) if he passes a physical with the team, philly.com reports.
Impact: Prior to sustaining a season-ending kidney injury last year, Austin caught 47 passes for 568 yards and two TDs in his first campaign with the Browns (12 games). If he joins the Eagles, Austin, who turns 31 on June 30, would provide the team's wideout corps with added depth and experience, following the loss of Jeremy Maclin in free agency. As it stands, Riley Cooper, Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff currently top the Eagles' depth chart at receiver.
