Eagles release James Casey


The Eagles are reportedly parting ways with one of their reserve tight ends.

Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports the Eagles are releasing James Casey, whom they signed in free agency in 2013.

In two seasons with Philadelphia, the 30-year-old Casey caught a combined six passes for 90 yards with two touchdowns.  He was slated to make $4 million in 2015, per Rotoworld.

Casey’s most productive pass-catching season came with Houston in 2012, when he hauled in 34 passes for 330 yards and three TDs.

Casey’s release would leave the Eagles with three tight ends: Zach Ertz, Brent Celek and Trey Burton.

UPDATE 2:33 p.m. ET: The Eagles have announced Casey’s release.
