Eagles Release TE James Casey

After just two season in an Eagles uniform, James Casey has been relieved of his duties. 

Philadelphia announced Thursday that they would part ways with the veteran tight end who caught just six passes over two seasons. 

Casey was brought in with hopes of bolstering the solid play of running mate, Brent Celek, but soon become obsolete with the breakout of rookie Zach Ertz. 

Casey spent the beginning of his career with the Houston Texans and has missed only four games in his six year career.

He enjoyed his best offensive year in 2012 (a year before he joined the Eagles) when he caught 34 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns. 

Casey also recorded two blocked kicks on special teams in 2014.
