The Eagles have given up on two of their former big free-agent signings a few days after they traded another one.
The team has released WR Kevin Curtis and DE Darren Howard. The team previously traded DE Chris Clemons to the Seahawks for DE Darryl Tapp. That’s three big free-agent signings the team has sent packing in the past few days.
Howard joined the Eagles in 2006, notching 22½ sacks in 64 games with the team. Curtis signed a year later, catching 116 passes for 1,577 yards and eight TDs in 28 games.
“Darren Howard has been one of our most productive and versatile members of our defense in the last couple of years,” head coach Andy Reid said. “He is nothing but a solid player, leader and person on and off the field.
“Kevin is one of the classiest players I have ever been around. He's the type of player and person we like to build our team with. We just feel good about the young core of receivers we have on our team at this point.”
