The Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2018 National Football League offseason with little cap space.
Tight end Brent Celek was not only the longest-tenured member of the Philadelphia Eagles, but he was also beloved by teammates and fans alike.
This move will save the Eagles $4 million against the cap, as the 33-year-old tight end has $1 million coming to him still. He has led the team in receptions in each of the previous two seasons.
Celek's best years were 2009-11, when he caught 180 passes for 2,293 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The preliminary investigation is still ongoing as of Wednesday, according to the ICC page on Duterte's 'war on drugs' campaign. Created in 1998 through the Rome Statute, the ICC has jurisdiction over 124 of its members, including the Philippines.
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). DeSean Jackson ended it taking a punt to the house on the final play of the afternoon. "Brent embodies the City of Philadelphia's temperament and character with his toughness and grit". They cheered for the Super Bowl champ as he waved and thanked them.
Ngata (6-4, 335) spent the last three seasons with the Lions, where he missed a total of 16 games.
In a career primarily as a run-stopper, Ngata, who turned 34 in January, has played in 167 games with 31½ sacks, six forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and five interceptions.
That deal will help absorb the additional salary that was added with the trade with the Seahawks to acquire Michael Bennett.
