This rivalry is real!
Brent Celek has spent his entire career with the Philadelphia Eagles and after 10 seasons, the 33-year old tight end was released but his love for the city remains.
Appearing Friday on 97.5 The Fanatic last week, the longtime Eagle wanted to make it very clear to the fans in Philly that he wasn’t going to be one of those players who jumped ship and signed with a rival team:
“Hell no. Do you think I would play for the Cowboys? Philly is my home,” Celek said. “If they offered me 10 million, I still wouldn’t go.”
Celek went into more detail on his future, saying that he’s considering retirement:
“I think I’m leaning more toward retirement,” Celek said. “I’ve had a few offers, but none of them are worth leaving a city that I have been in for 11 years where I won the Super Bowl in my final year. It wouldn’t feel right to put another uniform on.”
Now, I know the Eagles-Cowboys are longtime rivals and don’t get me wrong, Celek might rather retire than play for a division rival but if Jerry Jones wrote him a check for $10 million, I have a hard time believing he’d decline that.
