New Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly plans to us multiple tight ends in his offense, and Brent Celek knows who he has to acknowledge for that. "You have to give credit to (Rob Gronkowski) and (Aaron) Hernandez and what they've done for the tight end position," Celek told Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. "You can have two great tight ends, use them efficiently and win a lot of games. I think they've kind of helped change the position with the things they've done." Along with Celek, the Eagles added James Casey and drafting Zach Ertz. to the position, and they all plan to be used frequently. It's good news for Celek, who's the elder statesman of the group, and after a so-so 2012 season, he'll still be relied upon as the best option over the middle and YACs. "Any time you have three tight ends on the field or two tight ends, the defense has to pick whether they want to put an extra linebacker or an extra (defensive back)," Celek added. "I think you can get mismatches based on that ... you've got bigger guys. If they want to put a (defensive back) on you, you can run the ball. If they want to put a linebacker on you, you can throw the ball."
