When discussing the multiple tight ends that will be part of Chip Kelly's offense, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek threw a shout out to the duo in New England.

"You have to give credit to (Rob Gronkowski) and (Aaron) Hernandez and what they've done for the tight end position," Celek told Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. "You can have two great tight ends, use them efficiently and win a lot of games. I think they've kind of helped change the position with the things they've done."

Entering his seventh season with the Eagles, the veteran said that Kelly let him know every step of the way where he stood as the team built its tight end corps -- signing James Casey and drafting Zach Ertz.

Questions about Celek's future have been raised after, like most of the Eagles, he had a mediocre 2012 season. However, Celek currently provides the best target over the middle and is generally near the top of the league in yards after the catch at his position.
