Eagles release TE Curtis to make room for Smith

The Eagles have dropped one tight end from their roster to add another. The team announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms with TE Alex Smith on a one-year contract.

In order to make room for Smith on the 53-man roster, Philadelphia released TE Tony Curtis.

Smith, 27, was dealt from the Bucs to the Patriots during the offseason, but was cut as New England trimmed its roster to 53 players. Originally a third-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2005, Smith has played in 58 career games (43 starts), posting 129 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Curtis, who spent his first three season in the league with the Cowboys, was released by the Chiefs last month. He recently signed with the Eagles after the team had been struck by injuries at tight end. He has 11 catches for 50 yards in 36 NFL games.
