The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms on a four-year contract with TE Brent Celek on Wednesday. He is the fifth member of the Eagles 2007 draft class to reach a contract agreement, joining Stewart Bradley, Tony Hunt, C.J. Gaddis, and Rashad Barksdale.

A fifth-round draft choice out of Cincinnati, Celek (6-4, 261) led all Big East tight ends as a senior in receptions (35) and yards (481), while adding three touchdowns, including an 83 yarder against seventh-ranked Rutgers.

A two-year Big East All-Academic team selection, the 22-year-old Celek finished his career ranked third on the school’s all-time list among tight ends in receptions (91) and touchdowns (14), while amassing 1,135 yards. A second-team All-Conference USA recipient as a sophomore, he set a Bearcat single-season record for touchdowns (8) by a tight end.
