Eagles release TE Brent Celek, their longest-tenured player

The $7.5 million in savings nearly gets the Eagles under the number they need to be under the cap when the new league year starts Wednesday at 4 p.m.

It's a bittersweet day for the Philadelphia Eagles as tight end Brent Celek has been released.

Speaking of Ertz, the Eagles must now find another reliable tight end option to play behind him with Celek gone.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor. The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

A fifth-round draft pick in 2007, Celek played all 11 of his National Football League seasons in Philadelphia, missing just one game during that span. Celek was the longest-tenured athlete in the city having spent 11 seasons with the Birds and a model of toughness and what the Eagles organization wants in a player. He has been a huge part of everything we have been building over the last decade, and it is only fitting that he was able to help us win our first Super Bowl last season.

The Philadelphia Eagles have significantly shortened their tight-end depth chart this offseason. He finished out his long and successful run with 398 catches for 4,998 yards, and 31 touchdowns. 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. A few teams are off the market for quarterbacks, as Drew Brees signed a two-year, $50 million deal with New Orleans, Case Keenum reportedly agreed to play for the Broncos, and Kirk Cousins agreed to a likely three-year, $84 million deal with Minnesota. He missed just one regular-season game during his time with the Eagles, and that was because he couldn't pass concussion protocol on a short week in 2012.
