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).

Like their other recent acquisition, defensive tackle Michael Bennett, Nagota has a Super Bowl ring, winning his with the Baltimore Ravens in the 2012 season. His role decreased following the arrival of Zach Ertz in 2013 but Celek remained a regular contributor as a backup tight end, valuable for his ability to block well.

Haloti Ngata, who starred for the Baltimore Ravens, where Eagles vice president of football personnel Joe Douglas worked, will join the Eagles on a one-year contract once the league year begins Wednesday, according to ESPN. He made his first Pro Bowl, earned first-team all-pro honors and served as a key component on the Eagles' offensive line en route to a Super Bowl title.

The Eagles also lost tight end Trey Burton after he agreed to a deal with the Chicago Bears, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Celek played innine postseason games, recording 27 catches for 257 yards and three touchdowns.
