Who are the oldest players to ever wear an Eagles jersey?

One of the many things that keep us fixated on the Philadelphia Eagles year in and year out is the NFL’s obsession with parity. It doesn’t matter how bad things were the year before or how bleak they look heading into the offseason, drafting the right prospect or acquiring the free agent your team desperately needed to add (or both) can put you right back in the driver’s seat in your division.
