Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reported earlier today that the Eagles "evaluated" tight end Tony Curtis on Friday and could sign him pending a physical. La Canfora cited a team source for the information. The Eagles have made no official announcement regarding Curtis.
In 36 career NFL games, all with Dallas, Curtis has 11 catches for 50 yards and three touchdowns. In fact, all three of his touchdowns came on his only three receptions in 2007. The 6-5, 251-pound Curtis was originally signed as a rookie free agent out of Portland State in 2005 by the Cowboys and spent the entire season on the practice squad. Curtis appeared to have a future in Dallas in the 2008 off-season even with the presence of Jason Witten. Dallas had traded backup tight end Anthony Fasano to the Dolphins paving the way for Curtis. However, the Cowboys used a second-round pick to select Martellus Bennett one day later.
Curtis still played in all 16 games for Dallas last year and caught 8 passes for 32 yards. Curtis was signed by the Chiefs after they traded Tony Gonzalez earlier this off-season. However, Curtis was let go when Amani Toomer was signed.
