Okay, we’ve seen enough. Jordan Mailata can do anything. Before any of us knew anything about him and, more than likely before he knew anything about the Philadelphia Eagles, he was a star on the South Sydney Rabbitohs roster. One thing led to another, and before you know it, he’s drafted by the Birds in Round 7 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

He was the second player in league history to be drafted with no American high school or college football experience (German Moritz Böhringer was the first). You all know how the story unfolded after that.

Philly’s project tackle landed on the team’s injured reserve to end his rookie campaign after sustaining a back injury and failing to appear in any games. He missed the first two games of 2019 and battled COVID-19 in 2020 before finally getting his opportunity.

In 2021, he continued to turn heads, beating the Eagles’ first-round draft choice from 2019, Andre Dillard, out for the starting left tackle job. One four-year, $64 million contract extension and 14 starts later, the Australian is still turning heads.

The victory lap continues for Eagles star Jordan Mailata.

Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to cheer Jon Dorembos on during his appearance on America’s Got Talent. We’ve seen Eagles cheerleader Kyle Tanguay compete on American Idol. We’ve seen Jason Avant show off the American Gladiator skills during an appearance on American Ninja Warrior. During a recent episode of The Masked Singer, Mr. Mailata earned his opportunity.

Take a look.

That’s good enough for two thumbs up. Playing left tackle for the Eagles is no small or easy task. It never will be, but Mr. Mailata gets the gold stamp of approval for this one. Any takers on what he might do for an encore? Did you catch the play on words?

Yep, you’re absolutely right. We totally meant to throw the pun in there.
