The Eagles are expected to keep Brent Celek for the 2017 season.
Celek counts $5 million against the salary cap, but the Eagles would save only $1 million by releasing him. Now 32 years old, Celek played just 39 percent of Philly's 2016 offensive snaps, losing playing time to superior receiver Trey Burton behind Zach Ertz. Celek will return as the Eagles' No. 3/blocking tight end.
