^But...but but but...he promised!!
Brent Celek promised that a few years from now he won't feel as though he's being underpaid.
The Eagles' tight end signed a six-year contract extension today that a league source said was worth $4.8 million per year, including an $11 million signing bonus. The deal has incentives that could push the total value to around $33 million.
The extension is comparable to the six-year deal that Jason Witten signed in 2006 with the Dallas Cowboy and five years from now it could leave Celek feeling underpaid. If that's the case, Celek said so be it.
"I'll tell you right now that I'm set and I'm happy with my deal," Celek said. "I can promise you that I won't be up here complaining about my deal. They put a trust in me by signing me early and have given me financial security for the rest of my life, so I owe it to them to play out my deal and that is personally how I feel and that is how I'll go about my business."
