Eagles bring in veteran WR Washington on one-year deal

The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to a one-year deal with wide receiver Kelley Washington, NFL Network insider Mike Lombardi reported Saturday, citing a source with knowledge of the situation.

Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Washington spent last season with the Baltimore Ravens, catching 34 passes for 431 yards and two touchdowns -- his most productive year as a pro. The eighth-year veteran -- who played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots before joining the Ravens -- has 107 career receptions for 1,327 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Washington was selected by the Bengals in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft out of Tennessee.

The Eagles held their first training-camp practice Friday at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. The team's preseason schedule begins Aug. 13 at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

To make room for Washington on the 80-man roster, the Eagles released rookie wide receiver Jared Perry.
