The open receiver was ready for Week 1 when he arrived at Lincoln Financial Field with the perfect outfit. Above, a Kelly Brent Celek green shirt. A lot of respect.
“Legend of the Eagles!” Hollins said.
Hollins was a rookie on the Eagles Super Bowl team, which of course marked the final season of Celek in the NFL when the beloved striker came to the top.
Celek has never played for another team in his career. He has adapted to more regular season games (175) with the Birds than anyone in franchise history who has never played for another team.
“I’m very excited for my team, this organization, but dude, I’m very excited for these fans,” said Celek on February 4, 2018, the night the Eagles won the Super Bowl. “I can not wait to go back and celebrate.”
The next Eagles Super Bowl mission began Sunday. Hollins knew how to start.
