FSU Alums: Eagles working hard to keep Patrick Robinson with team

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Celek was due to count for $5 million against Philadelphia's 2018 salary cap.

The Eagles also made a terribly harsh decision - but one many say is necessary in cutting Brent Celek. After being drafted in 2007, Celek would never play for another team besides the Eagles in his lengthy career. 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 finished out his long and successful run with 398 catches for 4,998 yards, and 31 touchdowns. 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. He has seen his receiving role in the offense significantly shrink over the last two years, as he's totaled just 27 total catches, 285 yards and one touchdown.

Howie Roseman does it again. Prior to the 2016-17 season, the Eagles and Johnson agreed to a six-year, $63 million contract with over $35 million guaranteed. The one-time third tight end in Philly will be paid $32 million over four years when he officially signs with Chicago. 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. Ertz is coming off another terrific season where he led the team with 74 receptions and 824 receiving yards and was tied for second with eight touchdowns.
