Gotta be honest – I thought Brent did retire after leaving the Eagles organization as a Super Bowl champion.
Apparently not, though he told Jason Martinez and Harry Mayes on 97.5 The Fanatic today that he’s had some offers but is closer to retirement than jumping in with another team:
"I think I'm leaning more toward retirement. I've had a few offers, but none of them are worth leaving a city that I have been in for 11 years where I won the Super Bowl in my final year. It wouldn't feel right to put another uniform on." – @BrentCelek in studio with @975Middays pic.twitter.com/pkhqkbd81t

Brent should retire. Go out on top as a Super Bowl champion. Finish your career as a one-team guy. Put a bow on a fantastic run and don’t junk it up with one or two years as a backup tight end with the 49ers or Browns or Ravens or whatever.
For what it’s worth, he did put the kibosh on signing with the Cowboys, who need a tight end. Celek said he wouldn’t sign in Dallas even if they offered him ten million dollars.
He was in-studio with the pair for an entire hour today and you can listen to that here:
