Eagles' Brent Celek confirms plan to return in 2018

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek said he has no plans to retire.

What It Means:

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.
