Eagles release TE Brent Celek, their longest-tenured player

Eagles Draft Series Analyzing WRs Courtland Sutton and Christian Kirk

With Philadelphia needing to free up cash to get under the cap by Wednesday's deadline, Celek was sacrificed in order to accomplish that goal.

The Eagles announced Celek's release on Tuesday.

Robinson was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2010 and spent five years with the team before playing a season each with the then San Diego Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts before signing with the Eagles this offseason. But his production has waned in recent seasons and the Eagles will save $4 million in salary cap space by releasing him.

Obviously, the most important factor for the Eagles is Zach Ertz is still around for years to come since he's the No. 1 option for this offense. Philadelphia employed this somewhat unusual strategy to bring LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long and others into the fold past year.

Celek has certainly been durable, missing just one game over his last 11 years, something that should mitigate concerns about his age. During his Eagles career, Celek totaled 398 catches for 4,998 yards and 31 touchdowns, marking the eighth-most receiving yards and 11th-most receiving touchdowns (tied) in Eagles history. He has just 27 receptions for 285 yards and one touchdown in 32 games since 2016. And even though Celek recently indicated he would love to return for another National Football League season, it will be interesting to see if the veteran tight ends sticks to that decision or simply decides to call it a career by going out as a victor.

Celek finished with only 13 catches for 130 yards and one touchdown last season.

Howie Roseman does it again.
