Celek is now known as the longest tenured athlete in Philadelphia.
The Eagles saved $4 million by releasing Celek, and now the 33-year old will be on the hunt for a new team to call home to close out his career. Not only will he go down as one of the greatest tight ends for the Eagles of all time, but he will go down as one of the most beloved Eagles' during his long and successful tenure on the birds.
Danny Amendola leaving New England Patriots, expected to sign with Miami Dolphins
Amendola is also an experienced return specialist, which could mean he'll push receiver/returner Jakeem Grant for his role. He led the team in catches (26) and receiving yards (348) and was second in touchdowns with two.
Celek finished with 398 catches for 4,998 receiving yards and 31 receiving touchdowns in his 175 games with the Eagles. His 971 receiving yards that season are the second-most by a tight end in Eagles history, trailing only Pete Retzlaff's 1,190 receiving yards in 1965. During that decade-plus in the league, Celek has missed just one out of a possible 176 games, which is an incredible feat.
The Eagles diminished Celek's role in the offense over the past two seasons. Johnson, slated to have a cap hit of over $12 million in 2018-19, will now have one just under $5 million due to Howie Roseman's magical cap structuring talents.
