Brent Celek Released by Eagles, Will Enter Free Agency

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham defends against the Dallas Cowboys during an NFL football game Sunday Nov. 19 2017 in Arlington Texas

However, when it comes to the team parting ways with their longest-tenured player in tight end Brent Celek, it's safe to say this was the decision that hurts the most for fans. Celek, who missed just one regular-season game in his 11-year career with Philadelphia, ranks fourth in team history with 175 games played behind David Akers (188), Brian Dawkins (183) and Harold Carmichael (180). Also expect 2017 practice squad tight end Billy Brown to assume a role on the offense now that Celek and Trey Burton are gone. The 6-4, 255-pound tight end caught 398 passes for 4,998 yards and 31 touchdowns during his career with the Eagles. He has just 27 receptions for 285 yards and one touchdown in 32 games since 2016.

The Philadelphia Eagles have significantly shortened their tight-end depth chart this offseason. His best season came in 2009, when he finished with 76 catches for 971 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Eagles saved $4 million by releasing Celek, and now the 33-year old will be on the hunt for a new team to call home to close out his career.

We all know that this business decision was far from personal, as Celek has been an outstanding leader on and off the field for the Eagles. On Monday alone, the Miami Dolphins cut former Seminole star Lawrence Timmons and the Philadelphia Eagles made it known they want one former Nole back.
