Eagles wide receiver Kevin Curtis returned to his home state of Utah for a charity golf tournament and proclaimed himself fully healthy to play this season.

Curtis missed the beginning of last season following sports hernia surgery and then missed the post-draft minicamp because of a followup surgery in April. He was a limited participant in the last group of OTAs, saying he felt strong at the start of practices but the area would get fatigued.

"I'm 100 percent this year," Curtis told ABC4 in Provo. "I'm feeling good. I should be ready to roll."

Curtis, who turns 31 next month, also is suddenly the graybeard among the wide receivers. He knows that he is not guaranteed as prominent a role as he enjoyed when he signed as a free agent 2 years ago, penciled in right away as the No. 1 wideout.

"I'm trying to keep the hair long to stay kind of young to throw off the front office to think I'm not aging," joked Curtis, heading into his seventh NFL season.

Curtis also talked about making it all the way to the NFL and his deep Utah roots.

"I feel like I do belong," he said. "You talk to me 15 years ago I was just trying to get on the field in high school ...

"This is home for me. This is where I'm from. I always admired guys coming out of Utah in professional sports so I take a lot of pride in that."
