% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Eagles released tight end Brent Celek on Tuesday, saying goodbye to the team’s longest-tenured player after 11 seasons, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Celek, 33, is one of the best tight ends in Eagles history. But his production has waned in recent seasons and the Eagles will save $4 million in salary cap space by releasing him.

A 2007 fifth-round pick, Celek played all but one game during his 11-year career. His 175 regular-season games rank fourth in franchise history, behind David Akers, Brian Dawkins, and Harold Carmichael. He had 398 catches for 4,998 yards and 31 touchdowns. The receptions rank fourth in franchise history, and the yardage ranks eighth.

Celek finished with only 13 catches for 130 yards and one touchdown last season. He was used mostly as a blocking tight end. His best season came in 2009, when he finished with 76 catches for 971 yards and eight touchdowns.
