Eagles Restructure Lane Johnson's Deal, Save $7.5 Million In Cap Space


As part of their strategy to cut their big number down, they've chose to release tight end Brent Celek, due to make $5 million this year.

Celek finished with 398 catches for 4,998 receiving yards and 31 receiving touchdowns in his 175 games with the Eagles.

The Eagles shared a heartfelt message about Celek's departure, noting that "Brent Celek defines what it means to be a Philadelphia Eagle". "His dedication to his profession and this organization is unmatched and he will go down as one of the best tight ends in franchise history". "Brent embodies the City of Philadelphia's temperament and character with his toughness and grit".

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. The Eagles were able to create $7.5 million in cap space according to a report by ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates.

Then, Shakhtar's Ordets fouled on Džeko and was sent off. "A fantastic result, a fantastic Roma: among the best eight sides in Europe", he posted.

"Unfortunately, in this business we are forced to make hard decisions, especially this time of year".

The 33-year-old has appeared in all but one game with the team over his 11 National Football League seasons. "This one is as tough as they come, but in our eyes, Brent will always be an Eagle". He has seen his receiving role in the offense significantly shrink over the last two years, as he's totaled just 27 total catches, 285 yards and one touchdown.

Last season, Johnson was named to the Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro.
