Veteran tight end Brent Celek is retiring and will make the announcement today,’s Michael Silver reports.

“In the end, I just couldn’t fathom putting on another uniform,” Celek told “I had a perfect ending, and it was time.”

The 33-year-old Celek was released by the Eagles in March after playing in the team’s Super Bowl 52 win over the Patriots.

Celek missed only one game in 11 years after being drafted by Philly out of Cincinnati in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft. He’ll finish his career with 393 catches for 4,998 yards and 31 touchdowns.
