Eagles beat writer Geoff Mosher sees tight end Brent Celek as vet with shaky job security.
Celek turns 29 after the season and had his role changed in Chip Kelly’s offense, catching just 32 passes last year, his fewest since his second season.
Kelly drafted Zach Ertz with a high second-round pick last year. Ertz caught 36 passes for 469 yards last year and is expected to have an increased role this season.
Everyone kept waiting for the Eagles to use their TEs more last year, especially when WR Riley Cooper was struggling early on. While it never really happened, many feel this will be the year, especially for Ertz. We rank Ertz 13th among TEs. We all know by now this is a pretty top-heavy position with a lot of parity after that. Ertz is certainly among that group. But until the Eagles show they are going to use him more, he'll come with some risk.
