The answer may not be as clear as one would think. Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek has been a staple of the Eagles for seven seasons. He has been nearly infallible in his position. The man has dropped two balls in his seven year career. That is two drops in 312 receptions. That is a staggering stat. He’s been “Mr. Reliable” for the Eagles his entire career. But a funny thing happened last year.
Celek only had 32 receptions in 2013 for 502 yards where Philadelphia rookie tight end Zack Ertz had 36 receptions for 469 yards. Ertz was targeted more as well. Not sure the logic behind that but the rookie got more play time. Maybe Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is passing the torch. Could he be preparing for a life without Celek?
Let’s hear what you think.
