There are several Philadelphia Eagles we aren’t discussing much that could wiggle their way onto the final 53-man roster.
By now, if you come from one of those families where the Philadelphia Eagles are like an heirloom that’s handed down from generation, you’ve probably heard a ton of “underdog” and “Rocky” references. Keep in mind the fact that Rocky is a fictional character, but there’s a statue of him in the “City of Brotherly Love”.
Why is that you ask? Before Super Bowl LII, the greatest tale of an underdog Philadelphian’s coming of age was about this fictional boxer and then maybe Vince Papale. The latter’s story is captured in Walt Disney’s 2006 film Invincible. Rocky being the underdog and being from Philly made sense. He isn’t the same character if he’s from anywhere else.
Every year in the NFL, there’s a draft, and after that draft, teams pick up undrafted free agents. Eagles fans wonder if those guys or some of the underdogs who have already been with the team can make it. Every year, they find someone to cheer for. The hope is you get what Philly got from Corey Clement during the 2017-2018 season.
Might there be some underdogs on this current 90-man roster? It’s possible. Here are five guys we aren’t discussing much who could surprise some people and catapult themselves onto the final 53-man roster and into a nice 2020 season.
