Eagles release Howard, Curtis

The Eagles released veterans Darren Howard and Kevin Curtis today.

Howard, a defensive lineman,  joined the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent in 2006 and played in all 64 regular season games and six postseason contests. During his four-year tenure in Philadelphia, he registered 22.5 sacks among his 122 tackles.

"Darren Howard has been one of our most productive and versatile members of our defense in the last couple of years,” said head coach Andy Reid. “He is nothing but a solid player, leader and person on and off the field."

Curtis, a former starting receiver, signed with Philadelphia as an unrestricted free agent in 2007 and caught 116 passes for 1,577 yards and eight touchdowns in 28 games.

"Kevin is one of the classiest players I have ever been around. He's the type of player and person we like to build our team with. We just feel good about the young core of receivers we have on our team at this point."
