Philadelphia Eagles TE Brett Brackett fighting for a roster spot
Brent Celek hasn’t been on the practice field since injuring his knee on July 26. But Brett Brackett, who’s getting extra work at that position as a result, is making the most of it.
His solid work, which sometimes includes working with the first team at training camp on the campus of Lehigh University, is one of the main reasons Celek has not been missed.
Brackett, Clay Harbor and undrafted rookie Chase Ford are the three tight ends in camp fighting to become Celek’s backup, and all have been doing what’s required. For tight ends in this system, that’s mainly to run precise routes, don’t jump offside on the way and catch the ball before trying to turn up the field.
Brackett, a Penn State graduate, has developed a close relationship with quarterbacks Michael Vick and Mike Kafka in training camp than he did while spending the final eight weeks of last season on the team’s practice squad.
If Brackett does make it, it would be all the more remarkable considering the positions changes he’s made to get to this point.
Brackett came out of Lawrence (N.J.) High School as a quarterback, and then was asked to move to wide receiver after arriving at Penn State.
Brackett had no problem with the transition to wide receiver as he went on to play in 52 games (15 starts), with 56 catches for 714 yards and seven touchdowns.
As a senior starter, he caught 39 passes for 525 yards and five TDs.
