Eagles' Carson Wentz sends shout-out to cap casualty Brent Celek

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.

Quarterback Carson Wentz joined Chris Long and Zach Ertz with Twitter shout-outs to Celek, who was cut Tuesday to free cap space.

Celek played 11 seasons in Philadelphia and was valued for his toughness and blue-collar approach to the job. He missed just one regular-season game during his time with the Eagles, and that was because he couldn't pass the concussion protocol on a short week in 2012.

He attended the Philadelphia 76ers' home game on Tuesday night and was given a standing ovation by the crowd.
