Free-agent WR Miles Austin (Browns) signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, March 30. The deal is worth $2.3 million with $700,000 available in incentives, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Is Austin capable of filling the Jeremy Maclin role in Chip Kelly's offense? Looks like he'll at least get a shot. If he's still holding that gig the third week in August, you can start making some fantasy noise about him; until then, he's a low-end option.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Miles Austin is unlikely to re-sign with the team after the Browns signed WR Brian Hartline on Monday, March 9. Hartline is basically a younger version of Austin.
Huddle Up: Even with the addition of Hartline, the Browns don't exactly have an overabundance of WR options, but apparently one season was enough with the 30-year-old Austin, who had 47 catches for 568 yards and two TDs this past year.

The Cleveland Browns placed WR Miles Austin (hip) on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: As expected, another season has been cut short for Austin, who notched season highs in receptions (7) and yardage (86) in his final game Sunday. Rookie free agent Taylor Gabriel and Travis Benjamin should get a few more looks in Austin's absence, but Josh Gordon and Andrew Hawkins remain the Browns' top WR targets.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (kidney) will spend a third night in a Buffalo hospital Tuesday, Dec. 2, due to the kidney injury suffered in the Week 12 loss against the Buffalo Bills. The team said he is being kept for precautionary reasons, but has not disclosed any other details of his injury.
Huddle Up: Certainly sounds like Austin is at least out for Week 14 and possibly longer depending on the exact nature of the injury.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin will stay in a hospital Monday night while recovering from a kidney injury he sustained Sunday, Nov. 30. It is not known when Austin is expected to be released, according to head coach Mike Pettine.
Huddle Up: Austin is coming off a season-high 7 catches for 86 yards in the Week 13 loss to the Bills. It definitely sounds like he'll be a longshot to play, though, Sunday against the Colts.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 10.
Huddle Up: Yeah, sure, it's June 10 -- not Sept. 10 -- but as we've seen over recent seasons, Austin's hammy issues seemingly know no bounds.

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said the team is being cautious with WR Miles Austin this offseason, because he has dealt with hamstring injuries the last few seasons.
Huddle Up: It wouldn't be unreasonable for the Browns to encase Austin in bubble wrap until September, as he's been unable to stay healthy and on the field. With Josh Gordon out, the Browns will need a contribution from Austin to field a decent passing game.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Raise your hand if you're surprised Austin is nicked already. With Josh Gordon out, Austin has an opportunity to be a fantasy factor once again in Cleveland--but he'll need to stay on the field to do so.

The Cleveland Browns have signed unrestricted free-agent WRs Miles Austin (Cowboys) and Earl Bennett (Bears) to undisclosed deals.
Huddle Up: It's officially panic time in Cleveland with Josh Gordon's possible year-long suspension hanging over the franchise, and the Browns swept up a pair of wideouts who combined for 56 catches, 487 yards and 4 TDs last season -- a fraction of Gordon's monster year (87-1,646-9).
