Regardless of how long Clement’s been here, he still feels like a one-year wonder (for now).

It’s been a long time since Corey Clement went off in the Philadelphia Eagles’ one and only Super Bowl win. Watching that game, and if that was the only football game you had ever seen, you’d never believe it if someone told you that he was an undrafted rookie that would have to work his way onto the roster in the preseason.

Then, on one magical night in February of 2018, Clement became a part of Eagles folklore forever. That night, he carried the rock three times for eight yards, returned a kick for 25 yards, and hauled in four passes for 100 yards.

One of those was a long catch and run that set up first-and-goal at the end of the first half. He’d also take the snap on the most famous trick play in NFL history, the “Philly Special”. Another came on a beautiful but controversial toe-tap in the back of the end zone.

Corey Clement made a name for himself in Super Bowl 52, but since then, he’s watched his season end in 2018 after Week 14 thanks to a knee injury, and he made a return trip to the team’s IR (injured reserve)  in 2019 with a shoulder injury. He re-signed with the team on April 29th, but at this point, you have to ask if his best days are behind him.
