The Philadelphia Eagles are releasing Deon Cain, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

A 2018 sixth-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts, Cain has also played with the Pittsburgh Steelers in addition to the Eagles and Colts. He has recorded nine receptions for 124 yards in his NFL career.

Cain had 130 receptions for 2,040 yards and 20 touchdowns over 42 games (14 starts) in his career at Clemson from 2015-17.
