Free agent TE Brent Celek will visit the Lions on Thursday.
It's Celek's first visit since being let go by Philadelphia on Tuesday. The Lions are in the market for a tight end after cutting former first-rounder Eric Ebron. Celek does have a 900-yard receiving season on his resume, but he's mostly a blocker at this stage of his career. Mar 15 - 12:54 PM

Eagles released TE Brent Celek.

The move saves the Eagles $5 million in cap space. It also ends Celek's 11-year run in Philadelphia. Celek was a big contributor early in his career but secured a career-low 13 catches last year while taking a backseat to Zach Ertz. The 33-year-old doesn't have a ton left but can still help teams as a blocking tight end.
Mar 13 - 2:00 PM

Brent Celek has confirmed he plans to return for a 12th season in 2018.

There had been talks that Celek might hang it up, but he said "I wanna play" on Tuesday. Now a pure blocking tight end, Celek has just 27 catches over the past two seasons but hasn't missed a game since 2012. He's been a valuable role player, though Pro Football Focus charted his blocking as in major decline last season. Celek is due $4 million for 2018, which is a bit steep for his current role.
Mar 6 - 5:03 PM

Per Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, "there's a thinking" that TE Brent Celek will retire.

A blocking tight end behind Zach Ertz, Celek played 40.5 percent of the Eagles' 2017 offensive snaps. Philadelphia is currently projected to be over the 2018 salary cap and could use the cap savings if Celek moves on, which would free up $4 million. 33-year-old Celek has spent his full 11-year career in Philly.
Feb 12 - 5:01 PM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kepski believes TE Brent Celek could be entering his final season with the Eagles.

Celek took a pay cut this offseason and essentially did the same last year, so it is possible he takes another cut on the $4 million he is scheduled to make next year to stick around. If not, however, the Eagles are in good position with Zach Ertz atop the depth chart and Trey Burton a versatile option behind him, although Burton is scheduled to be a free agent after the season. Celek has seen his snap count fall each of the last two seasons, and that should continue this year.

The Eagles are expected to keep Brent Celek for the 2017 season.

Celek counts $5 million against the salary cap, but the Eagles would save only $1 million by releasing him. Now 32 years old, Celek played just 39 percent of Philly's 2016 offensive snaps, losing playing time to superior receiver Trey Burton behind Zach Ertz. Celek will return as the Eagles' No. 3/blocking tight end.

Eagles TE Brent Celek has a fractured rib.

The rib is non-displaced, so he is expected to play through the issue, although he will likely miss some practice time this week. Celek has just five catches this season.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 01:09:00 PM

Brent Celek corralled three-of-four targets for 61 yards Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.

Celek is mostly employed as a blocker but saw a bit more receiving work this week with Zach Ertz (ribs) out of the lineup. His longest gain came on a 24-yard catch-and-run early in the third quarter. Celek isn't going to be a fantasy option when the Eagles return from their bye week.
Sun, Sep 25, 2016 09:32:00 PM

Eagles signed TE Brent Celek to a three-year, $13 million extension through 2018.

The deal includes $6 million guaranteed. There was some speculation Celek would be cut after the Eagles locked up Zach Ertz to a big extension Monday, but he only had to wait a day to get his new deal. The two signings point to how important the tight end position will be in new coach Doug Pederson's offense. The Chiefs consistently used two tight ends while Pederson was in Kansas City, and Travis Kelce was a focal point of the passing offense. Ertz should be the pass-catching weapon in Philadelphia with Celek putting his blocking skills to work as the in-line option.
Tue, Jan 26, 2016 01:02:00 PM

Brent Celek caught both of his targets for 38 yards in the Eagles' Week 17 win over the Giants.

The veteran made a huge grab on the sideline late in the second half. Celek had a couple big games Weeks 10 and 11, catching 11 balls for 213 yards in those two contests. Other than that, he was the wily veteran who caught a pass here and there and handled blocking duties. Celek will turn 31 later this month and has one year left on his contract. He's scheduled to earn $4.925 million in 2016, but the Eagles can save $5 million by cutting him. It's possible Celek will be asked to take a pay cut.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 09:59:00 PM

Brent Celek caught his lone target for 18 yards in the Eagles' Week 16 loss to the Redskins.

The Eagles' primary blocking tight end, Celek has been a non-factor with Zach Ertz healthy this season. Celek played fewer than half of the snaps Ertz did on Saturday night, and has caught two or fewer passes in five straight games.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 12:17:00 AM

Brent Celek caught 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 12 loss to the Lions.

Celek tweaked his hip fighting for the goal line on his first quarter score, but remained in the game. Although he's come alive a bit the past two weeks, Celek's TE2 candidacy is still flimsy as best. He won't be a DFS consideration with Zach Ertz (concussion) likely to return for Week 13 against the Patriots.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 04:17:00 PM

Brent Celek secured 7-of-10 targets for 79 yards in the Eagles' Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Celek has now turned in back-to-back stat lines of 4-134 and 7-79, and he could continue to see an expanded role in the passing game if Zach Ertz (concussion) doesn't receive medical clearance ahead of Thanksgiving Thursday.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:06:00 PM

Brent Celek caught 4-of-4 targets for 134 yards in Philadelphia's Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

The outburst nearly doubled Celek's 2015 yardage total. 60 of his yards came on a first quarter catch where the Dolphins looked like they had never heard of him. The Eagles have been running more two-TE sets in recent weeks, but Celek remains miles from fantasy relevance.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 06:30:00 PM

Brent Celek caught his lone target for six yards in the Eagles' Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Celek is only in the lineup for his end-of-the-line blocking skills.
