The Philadelphia Eagles can expect a spirited effort by the Jets this week.

Part of belonging to this community known as Philadelphia Eagles fans means you’ll be exposed to both the wonderful and, sometimes toxic aspects of this team’s existence. There’s no need to go into any of that here as those parts of the typical Birds fan’s personality have been discussed enough, so much so that we don’t spend enough time talking about other things.

Here’s an example (and something you guys do without realizing that you’re doing it). You always find yourselves paying attention to what former Eagles are doing, don’t you?

It’s safe to say that Philly’s fans will spend a lot of time watching AFC football. Don’t be surprised if they’re tuning in to a few more Indianapolis Colts games than normal or if they’re fixated on what Andy Reid is doing with the Kansas City Chiefs. Then, there’s the AFC East.

You can best believe Birds fans will be watching how Jalen Mills and Nelson Agholor are progressing with the New England Patriots, and if they can stomach it, they may even tune in for a New York Jets game or two. Not only is their general manager Joe Douglas Philly’s former vice president of player personnel, but Josh Adams and Vinny Curry are also on his team now.

Adams probably won’t make the 53-man roster, but you get the idea. In the meantime, Eagles fans will get a firsthand look at the Jets during the final preseason game for both teams. Here are four guys, outside of Vinny Curry and Josh Adams of course, that are worth paying attention to.
