Brent Celek will always be an Eagle.
That sentiment resonated throughout the Delaware Valley on Tuesday afternoon when Celek was released by the Eagles.
It took only hours after the news broke for that sentiment to ring particularly true. Celek, who was the current longest-tenured athlete in Philadelphia, attended the Sixers-Pacers game at the Wells Fargo Center.
The best part? On the day he got cut, he was still rocking an Eagles hat and then received a lengthy standing ovation. Celek, in his typical unselfish manner, said repeatedly, "Thank you" and "I love you," as he smiled graciously while fans stayed on their feet.
"That's the reason why I'm probably not crying right now because I know at the end of the day, we brought the city what they needed and what they wanted," Celek said in an interview (which you can watch above) with NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark.
Watch the standing ovation below from multiple angles:
This won't be the last standing ovation Celek receives in Philadelphia.
After all, he's the ultimate Eagle — and now a champion forever.
Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.
The newest member of the Eagles linebacking crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.
If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:
When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.
It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.
His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]
Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl last month, but their fans were also treated to an encouraging site on Monday morning: Carson Wentz throwing a football.
Wentz shared some video to his Instagram story in which you can see him throwing a football from multiple angles while wearing a brace on his knee.
Back in January before the Super Bowl, the Eagles quarterback revealed that the knee injury he suffered in December was worse than originally thought. He tore his left LCL in addition to his ACL but he said then that he hoped to be back for Week 1.
"My goal is to be ready for Week 1," Wentz said. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. And I'm very confident in that."
"I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury — I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, with no looking back."
No reason to believe any of that has changed over the last month and a half and it sure looks like he's progressing.
