Eagles Sign WR Curtis

Eagles Sign WR Curtis

With Donte Stallworth officially gone, the Eagles quickly filled his spot with veteran Kevin Curtis. The former Ram inked a nice six-year deal with the Eagles that will guarantee him a nice chunk of change.

The Eagles and Kevin Curtis agreed to a six-year deal worth up to $32 million, according to Scout.com's Tony Pauline. The deal will give Curtis a $7.5 million signing bonus and guarantee another $2.0 million.

Curtis took a little less than a week to decide among five teams that were battling for his services and in the end, decided that the Eagles provided the best opportunity. As a member of St. Louis, he wasn't a starter, but played in all but one game over the last three seasons and pulled in 132 passes for just over 1,700 yards and he also accounted for 12 touchdowns. In 2005, Curtis caught 60 passes for 800 yards and six touchdowns, but was never able to push past Isaac Bruce or Torry Holt to gain a starting job with the Rams. The Vikings, Lions, Giants and Titans were also in the running to sign Curtis.

The move replaces Donte Stallworth in the wide receiving corps and gives the Eagles a veteran wide receiver to partner with Reggie Brown. Stallworth signed with New England earlier this week.
