Celek Among Franchise's Best Tight Ends

Put Brent Celek's accomplishments in perspective: A fifth-round draft pick in 2007, Celek has become one of the best tight ends in the history of the Eagles. He caught his 24th career touchdown pass last Sunday to move into sole possession of second place in the franchise record books behind Pete Retzlaff (47), and Celek is already second behind Retzlaff in career yards (3,792) and receptions (303).

"I've just tried to work hard every day and do my job," said Celek. "I have always said that I'll do whatever the coaches want me to do. I think I've become a much more complete tight end. I feel really good about my place here and about how the team is improving every day. We're just taking this thing day by day and enjoying it."
