    It appears that Miles Austin and DeMarco Murray are close to a reunion in Philadelphia.

    According to NFL.com and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Austin will visit the Eagles this week and, if he proves to be healthy, he’ll be signed.

    Austin joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth in 2006. His breakout campaign came in 2009, when he emerged from obscurity to post 81 catches, 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns, and earned his first Pro Bowl appearance. He’d return to the Pro Bowl the next season, on the back of 69 catches, 1,041 yards and seven scores.

    In the three season after that last Pro Bowl campaign, though, Austin was hampered by hamstring injuries and the Cowboys released him after the 2013 season, after eight years.

    Austin signed with the Cleveland Browns before last season and recorded 47 catches, 568 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games before he was diagnosed with a season-ending kidney injury.

    Next season will be Austin’s 10th in the NFL.
