Eagles Make ‘Difficult Decision’ To Release TE Brent Celek

The Eagles have parted ways with the longest-tenured player on the roster in tight end Brent Celek.

“Brent Celek defines what it means to be a Philadelphia Eagle. His dedication to his profession and this organization is unmatched and he will go down as one of the best tight ends in franchise history,” the team said in a statement. “Brent embodies the City of Philadelphia’s temperament and character with his toughness and grit. He has been a huge part of everything we have been building over the last decade and it is only fitting that he was able to help us win our first Super Bowl last season.

“Unfortunately, in this business we are forced to make difficult decisions, especially this time of year. This one is as tough as they come, but in our eyes, Brent will always be an Eagle.”

More to come.
