#Eagles and TE Brent Celek agreed to a 3-year, $13m deal with $6m guaranteed, per sources.


Was guaranteed to make just under $5 mil next year before, this deal basically takes that...adds an extra mil and spreads it over 3 years.

Shouldn't we be cutting him?

So, Celek had a cap hit of 5 million before this. I doubt this is an extension as in 3 years on top of 2016 (5 million owed). He probably restructured and lowered his cap hit this year for 2 extra years. The biggest $ is probably in the last year and I'm guessing he won't see much or any of that. He will be here for the next 2 years just by looking at the guaranteed money. Definitely not crazy about this with how his blocking was poor at times and the fact he's becoming less of a receiving threat.

Thoughts on Celek deal: team leader, willingness to do whatever is asked of him, transitioned well from pass catching TE to solid blocker.

Ownership, Roseman recognized his value to team over the years. Wanted to make sure he ends his career as an Eagle.

Celek definitely deserves to finish his career as an Eagle though. He really never misses time and has constantly put his body on the line. Great guy. I'm happy for him.

It definitely seems like Roseman is going the exact opposite direction of Chip. Instead of letting our guys walk (or kicking them out) he is showing them that we are committed to them and that they aren't so easily expendable. Can't say I'm upset with that at all. I was upset last off-season when Chip let go of our guys and brought in outside guys on big contracts.

I don't care about numbers. Celek is a great Eagle. Good for him.
I'd be shocked if this didn't benefit our cap situation at least for this year.

I'm 100% on board with this.

Kind of surprising, but I don't hate it. As a receiver, he actually had a lot more production than the prior year with drastically less targets. Obviously, a big part of that is Ertz's increased presence, but I think Celek is still a reliable target that allows us to be more versatile with Ertz and have them both on the field.

Thought it was obvious that was the case, but I'll retitle the thread I guess.

Celek is one of my all time favorites, I don't care how much we pay him he deserves to finish his career here. Bleeds green so hard

This. Glad to have Celek for 3 more years, I hope he retires an Eagle.

Hope it's a sign of things to come...always sucked seeing guys who, while on the downswing, still had a couple years in them get cut or not resigned. Most egregious obviously was Dawk.

As an extension to that once we draft and develop the nucleus of the team, I hope the FO is more willing to sign those players from other teams to help bolster the roster.

If its just a restructure then I guess that's ok.

Glad we're going back to rewarding our own. That mantra was clearly missing. The best way to get people to buy into a belief is the knowledge that if they perform well then they will be rewarded.
