The Mike Vick-era Philadelphia Eagles offense was one of the most exciting in the NFL. They had an incredible group of playmakers, led by names like Vick, DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy.

Tight end Brent Celek didn't exactly fit that theme, but even he got in on the fun by making an absolutely ridiculous play against Baltimore Ravens Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed.

Celek proved himself to be a reliable receiver throughout his career, but with a 33-inch vertical jump, this wasn't exactly the kind of play that Eagles fans came to expect form him.

The hurdle is especially impressive because it's not like Reed is lined up to try to take Celek out by the knees, either. He goes in about waist-high, and even starts to elevate while Celek is in the air.

Celek played his entire 11-year NFL career with the Eagles, winning a Super Bowl ring in 2017. As far as individual plays go, however, this may be the most memorable moment of his career.
