Eagles add James Casey

It’s not quite the Dream Team.  But it’s a team.  And they have a dream.  And they have new players.

The Eagles have announced that tight end James Casey has agreed to terms.  It’s a three-year deal.

The fifth-round pick in 2009 has been extremely versatile for the Texans, lining up in different places and providing a potent complement to tight end Owen Daniels.

He had a career-high 330 receiving yards in 2012.  For his career, Casey averages 11.4 yards per catch.

    Mike, great opening! I was cracking up. As an Eagles fan I’m really tired of hearing about the “Dream Team”, however, that was clever. Good stuff man.

    Ugh. I think this is yet another Texan we’ll watch blossom in another city.

    Solid run blocker at the TE position. Not a great pass catcher, but we got Celek in that role. Mccoy and Brown should be happy. Great signing!

    “Not a great pass catcher, but we got Celek in that role. ”

    His final season at Rice he had 111 receptions for 1329 yards and 13 TDs. Just because the Texans didn’t use him much as a receiver doesn’t mean he’s not good at it.

    “Not a great pass catcher….”

    Texans constantly raved about his hands… Love this signing, versatile player… If Chip is bringing New England concepts, Casey could be Aaron Hernandez-lite.

    Other moves also deserve applause – low risk, high reward moves. Exactly what the Eagles should be doing…

    Now if we could just go back in time and cut Vick.

    Didn’t realize that. All I know is that I saw him drop some passes in some Texans games last year. I took to small of a sample size to make that statement lol.
