Okay boys and girls, you have to check out this sick highlight reel of Cre’Von LeBlanc. You knew he was good, but did you know he was this good?
As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, it’s extremely difficult to watch a team with this much talent get ravaged by injuries and call it a blessing; but truthfully, that may, very well, be the case. There may not be a team that’s had to employ the ‘next man up’ mantra more than ‘The Birds’ over the past two seasons. If there’s any good news in that, it’s this. They’ve found out that they’ve got a couple of young guys on the roster that can play, case in point cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc.
We won’t waste a ton of your time because we understand that it’s precious. Just do yourself a favor, and watch this highlight reel.
Don’t blink. You may miss something important.

Some of you who are casual fans are probably asking yourselves what many Eagles fans asked a season ago. Who is this guy and where did he come from? It’s a simple question with a not-so-simple answer.
LeBlanc’s NFL career began with the New England Patriots, but things ended there when he was released as part of their final roster cuts with a designation to be added to injury reserve. That led to stints in the NFC North with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions before he was given a shot by Philly.
The fourth chance proved to be the charm as ‘The Birds’ would have to force him into action after injuries to several starters. In his first game, he was part of an embarrassing 48-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints. LeBlanc would improve all season long, gain praise from his coaches and return to New Orleans in the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs to pick off Drew Brees on the game’s first play.
Now, he’s seen as one of the better young talents on the roster regardless of position, and there’s a high chance he could make the roster in 2019. The Eagles definitely found a diamond in the rough thanks to some injuries. What happens now is up to LeBlanc. Stay tuned everybody. This guy is a story worth watching.
