Eagles' Brent Celek confirms plan to return in 2018
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek said he has no plans to retire.
According to The Philadelphia Enquirer's Jeff McLane, Celek said, "Yeah I wanna play" when asked about his intentions for this coming season. Earlier reports suggested the same thing, so expect the 33-year-old to return for his 12th season, all of which he's spent with the Eagles. He'll carry a cap hit of $4 million as the team's backup tight end.
This past season, Celek caught just 13 balls for 130 yards and a touchdown. However, his blocking helped lead the Eagles to the third-highest rushing total (2,115 yards) on the year.
