Just like every other season, the NFL likes to honor the good guys. Each year, all 32 NFL teams submit a single nominee for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. Although only one player wins the award, a nomination alone speaks volumes about what the team thinks about their nominee. The Philadelphia Eagles have nominated veteran tight end, Brent Celek to represent the organization.
Celek is a former fifth-round draft pick from Cincinnati. He has been with the Eagles throughout his entire professional career, which started in 2007. Although Celek has not been a production machine for quite some time now, his leadership still leaves an impact.
