The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Tuesday that the team has released tight end Brent Celek. Celek was the longest-tenured athlete in the city having spent 11 seasons with the Birds and a model of toughness and what the Eagles organization wants in a player. Philly drafted him in the fifth round in 2007 and spent his entire 11-year National Football League career with the team. Philadelphia employed this somewhat unusual strategy to bring LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long and others into the fold previous year.

The Philadelphia Eagles have significantly shortened their tight-end depth chart this offseason.

The Eagles also lost tight end Trey Burton after he agreed to a deal with the Chicago Bears, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. 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. For his career, Celek has 398 catches for 4,998 yards and 31 scores.

Barrow Hanley Mewhinney & Strauss LLC boosted its holdings in shares of Occidental Petroleum by 21.2% in the fourth quarter. Atlantic Gru Ltd Limited Liability Company has invested 0.02% in Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY).

"Brent Celek defines what it means to be a Philadelphia Eagle", the organization said in a statement, "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". This will likely limit interest in him as well as the value of the contract he signs, but shouldn't completely drives teams away to the point where he is not employed for the upcoming season.

With the Philadelphia Eagles having to trim down their salary cap number, it's been a busy week for the Super Bowl champions when looking at some of the moves they were forced to make, ranging from Lane Johnson re-structuring his contract to trading Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers.
