Although Brent Celek tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions and led the Eagles in yards after the catch, he played the entire season with a sports hernia and torn labrum in his left hip.
Like most of his teammates, Celek started the season off slowly—failing to record at least 50 receiving yards in six straight contests. However, he was able to recover and close out the year with a physicality that was sorely missed for the first 12 games.
During the team’s four-game win streak to close out the season, Celek recorded 17 receptions, 393 receiving yards and three scores—not only raising his own level of play, but also the entire team as well.
After undergoing successful offseason surgery to fix both of his injuries, expect the tight end to carry the responsibility of being Philadelphia’s primary red-zone receiving threat.
