Longtime Eagles' tight end Brent Celek announces retirement
Brent Celek announced his retirement after 11 NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"It’s a big decision, but it’s not a tough one: Though I know I’m still capable of playing football at a high level, and though I had offers to continue my NFL career, my heart told me that this was the time. The bottom line was this: When I thought long and hard about the prospect of putting on another uniform, it just seemed wrong. In the end, I couldn’t do it." Celek spent his entire career with the Eagles and proved to be as durable as they come, missing just one game over 11 seasons.
Celek caught 398 passes for 4,998 yards (12.6 yards per reception) and 31 touchdowns over 175 career games.
