Veteran tight end Brent Celek has told the Eagles he is retiring and will make the announcement with a statement Friday, reports NFL.com's Michael Silver. 

"In the end, I just couldn't fathom putting on another uniform," Celek told NFL.com. "I had a perfect ending, and it was time."

The 33-year-old Celek was released by the Eagles in March after playing in the team's Super Bowl LII win over the Patriots.
