. . . Nelson Agholor, Pats. 6. player. 47

Two Eagles who endured much criticism in Philadelphia have gone on to make names for themselves.

It seems like it’s been much longer, but Nelson Agholor‘s final appearance in an Eagles uniform came on December 1st of 2019 versus the Miami Dolphins. He was inactive the previous week and inactive for Philadelphia’s final four regular-season games of that season. He also missed the playoff game, a 17-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Round.

He played well in 2020 for the Las Vegas Raiders. Last season, his first with the Patriots, left much to be desired, but that’s been the story of his career. When he’s good, he’s been amazing. When he’s off he’s way off. If he can ever master the art of consistency, he’s really going to be something.

player. 59. . . . Eric Rowe, Fins. 5

It’s easy to forget this sometimes, but Eric Rowe was a second-round selection of the Eagles in 2015. Gosh, that seems like a long time ago.

He wasn’t that bad. He tallied 31 tackles, five pass breakups, and a pick in his lone season in the City of Brotherly Love. He was dealt to the Patriots for a conditional draft choice in the following offseason.

He’s never going to find his way onto a Pro Bowl roster, but he has been a part of two championship-winning teams during three seasons with the Pats. Now, with Miami, he’s been an excellent addition for them, appearing in 49 games with 33 starts and tallying 243 tackles, three interceptions, 23 pass breakups, four forced fumbles, and a defensive touchdown in the process.
