Eagles Acquire Wide Receiver Miles Austin

Posted on April 22, 2015 by


The Philadelphia Eagles are still acquiring players this offseason. They recently acquired Wide Receiver Miles Austin from the Cleveland Browns. Austin spent his previous eight seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles’ division rival.

“The Eagles have been making a lot of moves this offseason. We lost Maclin so we needed to pick up another guy.” senior Mike Osenbach said.

Miles Austin played his most recent season with the Cleveland Browns, who struggled last season and faced a few challenges with the Quarterback position. He posted below average stats last season while only scoring two touchdowns.

“He can definitely play. I think him being in Cleveland last year definitely hurt him a little bit from a statistical standpoint due to their ongoing QB controversy,” Osenbach said.

Miles Austin stands at 6’2” with a body weight of 215lbs.  Although he is 30 years of age, he is a perfect fit body-wise for Chip Kelly’s needs at the receiver position.

“Miles Austin is a solid receiver. He might not be a top guy–and most likely won’t be the Eagles number one guy–but he will definitely be a big help in trying to solidify their receiving core,” senior Tyler Emge said.

With the acquisition of Miles Austin, the Eagles will have some much needed help in their wide receiving core. With the departure of their former number one receiver, Jeremy Maclin, the Eagles will most likely look for help in second-year player, Jordan Matthews, who looks to be very promising.

“I’m very interested to see how the Eagles make out this season with all of their offseason changes,” Emge said.
