The Eagles continue to dramatically alter their roster.
The latest big name to go is wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who was cut just minutes after the team announced the release of Darren Howard.
The move isn’t surprising. Curtis was highly productive in his first season in Philadelphia, leading the team with 1,110 receiving yards. But injuries have limited him to just 12 games and 39 catches the last two years combined.
Curtis opened last season as a starter, but wound up with only six catches as he battled complications from sports hernia surgery, and then a knee injury.
Due $4.4 million in 2010, the Eagles had no choice but to release Curtis. He’s only 31 years old, however, and would make a decent low-cost gamble for some team out there.
