Brandon Graham will return to the Eagles for a 15th season (and we're grateful)

He's probably never going to be voted onto another Pro Bowl roster. If we're being honest, he should have been given more than the one nod he earned in 2020. We can think of at least three seasons where he was snubbed (see 2017, 2019, and 2022). Brandon Graham is one of us.

He bleeds Philadelphia Eagles green through and through, so if no one else will give him the respect he deserves, we most certainly will. Have you heard the news? B.G. is coming back, and frankly, we're pumped. The reasons extend beyond what he has done on the football field.

Brandon Graham gets his wish, a 15th NFL season in Eagles green.

B.G. was born in Detroit. How is it he fits the mold of a Philly guy so perfectly? Underdog? - Check! Beating the odds and rising above what you thought he could? - Check! Like Fletcher Cox and Jason Kelce, Graham has played for Andy Reid, Chip Kelly, Doug Pederson, and Nick Sirianni. He's an old man now, but he's earned himself a farewell tour, and it appears he will get his wish.

Brandon Graham was the first player Howie Roseman ever drafted. He said once he'd like to play for 15 seasons. He said in January that this will be his 'farewell tour' in the Birds will allow him one.

Why wouldn't they? He's a shoo-in for the Eagles Hall of Fame even if Canton turns the blind eye. He's more than a man that weathered the storm to become one of the great Eagles legends.

He's the author of the greatest strip-sack in Super Bowl history. He's a leader in the locker room. B.G. asked for a chance to go out on his terms. The Eagles have given him that, and truthfully, no one's happier than us.
