Through Thick And Thin: Brent Celek

Posted Nov 11, 2016

Summing up Brent Celek in one word can be a difficult task.

“Professional,” says Trey Burton.

Chris Maragos opts for “beast.”

Zach Ertz rolls with “tough” and “role model.”

Now in his 10th professional season (all with the same team, a list that includes only 10 active NFL skill-position players with at least 150 games of regular season experience) Celek’s been there for the peaks, catching 19 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns during a playoff run to the 2008 NFC Championship Game against Arizona. He’s been there for the valleys – seeing the Eagles go 4-12 in 2012, the team’s worst record since the 1998 campaign.

He’s been through different coaches and different systems. He flourished as one of the best yards-after-catch tight ends in the NFL under Andy Reid. He transformed into one of the league’s best blocking tight ends in Chip Kelly’s high-octane, rushing-focused system. He’s seen coordinators, head coaches and teammates come and go.

But through it all, though, Celek’s poise, character and mindset have remained centered. Click here or on the image below to learn more about the second-longest tenured athlete in Philadelphia.
