Eagles busy again as they bolster DL, restructure Lane Johnson's contract

On Monday alone, the Miami Dolphins cut former Seminole star Lawrence Timmons and the Philadelphia Eagles made it known they want one former Nole back.

Celek was the longest tenured player on the Eagles, who cleared $4 million from their salary cap with the move. Philly drafted him in the fifth round in 2007 and spent his entire 11-year National Football League career with the team. He missed just one regular-season game during his time with the Eagles, and that was because he couldn't pass the concussion protocol on a short week in 2012.

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

Johnson, 27, is under contract with the Eagles through the 2021 season.

Over his 11 seasons with Philadelphia, Celek finishes fourth in franchise history in catches (398) and games played (175), eighth in receiving yards (4998) and 11th in touchdowns (31).

The Eagles also lost tight end Trey Burton after he agreed to a deal with the Chicago Bears, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

He's been selected to five Pro Bowls and was a first-team All-Pro twice.

Celek set career highs in 2009 with 76 receptions for 971 yards and eight touchdowns.
