Kevin Curtis is ready to start working out for NFL teams.
The veteran wide receiver was treated for testicular cancer in September but has been working out for a while and is ready to resume his playing career.
“Kevin is ready. He’s feeling great,” Ryan Tollner, Curtis’ agent, told FOXSports.com. “His knee is 100 percent and he’s already passed a physical. He’s looking forward to playing."
Tollner added he’s in the process of notifying teams Curtis is ready to play.
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 and posted career highs in receptions (77) and yards (1,110) and tied a career-high with six touchdown catches.
However, the veteran pass catcher's next two seasons were injury plagued, so he was released by Philadelphia on March 18, less than three months before his $1 million roster bonus was due June 1.
Now healthy, Curtis could easily help a team that’s in need of a veteran receiver to handle a No. 3 or No. 4 role down the stretch.
Curtis was originally selected by the St. Louis Rams in the third round of the 2003 NFL draft.
