Eagles' Mack Hollins rolls into NFL Week 1 wearing Brent Celek jersey




 

Mack Hollins gets it.

The wide receiver was ready for Week 1 as he rolled into Lincoln Financial Field rocking the perfect attire.

Yup, that's a kelly green Brent Celek jersey. Much respect.

"Eagles legend!" Hollins said.

Hollins was a rookie on the Eagles' Super Bowl team, which of course, marked Celek's final NFL season as the beloved tight end went out on top.

Celek never played for another team in his career. He suited up in more regular-season games (175) with the Birds than anybody in franchise history who never played for another team.

"I'm so excited for my team, this organization, but man, I'm so excited for these fans," Celek said on Feb. 4, 2018, the night the Eagles won the Super Bowl. "I can't wait to get back to them and party."

The Eagles' next Super Bowl quest began Sunday. Hollins knew how to get it started.
