The Miami Dolphins have signed veteran WR Kevin Curtis to a one-year deal, his agent, Ryan Tollner, confirmed.
The wide receiver was treated for testicular cancer in September but has been cancer free for a while.
Curtis, known in scouting circles for his speed and short-area quickness, signed a six-year, $32 million deal in March 2007 with the Philadelphia Eagles. He got off to a great start with Philadelphia in his first season, posting career highs in receptions (77) and yards (1,110) and tying a career-high with six touchdown catches.
However, the veteran pass catcher's next two seasons were plagued by injury, so he was released by Philadelphia on March 18, less than three months before his $1 million roster bonus was due on June 1.
Curtis, 32, worked out for Miami on Monday. He also recently worked out for the Detroit Lions, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks.
Curtis should be able to get into the receiver rotation right away because Miami’s backup receivers, Roberto Wallace and Marlon Moore, are undrafted rookies.
