In every locker room, there is trash talk, Guys bash the next opponent on the schedule. They rag on each other about matchups between their old collegiate stomping grounds before a big-time Saturday afternoon or evening clash. Right now, on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster alone, there are former Mississippi State Bulldogs and guys from the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Big 12 and Pac-12 are represented. There are even LSU Tigers and an Ole Miss Rebel, A.J. Brown, on the roster We won’t even get into all of those Georgia Bulldogs.

On second thought, we will discuss those Dawgs. One-half of the first stage of the Georgia invasion, Nakobe Dean, sat at the breakfast table on NFL Network’s highly-popular Good Morning Football show, and he had a lot to say about… well… the Georgia Bulldogs.

Does Eagles linebacker Nakobe Dean have an assistant general manager gig waiting for him when his football days are over?

They say that, on average, the expected NFL career’s length of time covers the duration of that first rookie contract, give or take a year. We’re all hoping that these young Dawgs play much longer than that.

Nakobe Dean was trained to play the MIKE (middle linebacker role) all of last season. Sink or swim, in 2023, he’s being thrown to the wolves… or the Gators… or whatever.

Every Eagles fan is hoping for his success. Fingers are crossed in hopes that he won’t have to make another career change for a long time, but if he does, might an assistant general manager’s role come calling?

While hanging with the GMFB crew, he jokingly discussed his involvement in Howie Roseman’s research on the guys he won a College Football Playoff National Championship Game with. He also stated, with that signature smile, that he’d like to believe he had something to do with their selections by Philadelphia this past April.

Take a look at this one.

Yes, it’s a foregone conclusion. Those Georgia Bulldogs are going to have a lot of fun joking with their teammates when the in-conference portion of those SEC games gets hot and heavy during the coming college football season. Man, we wish we could be a fly on the wall.

Who’s up for another Alabama versus Georgia clash in the SEC Championship Game? We most certainly are. We expect Eagles fans everywhere to be watching. Who knows? We may be getting a glimpse at some future Birds.
