We all need a second chance from time to time. We'll inevitably fail in our relationships, on our jobs, or while walking through the trials of life. Here's the good news. If you don't get it right the first time (or the second), now and then, second chances lead to another... and, then another. The Philadelphia Eagles, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, are reportedly offering Parris Campbell a third opportunity to prove he has what it takes to be a consistently relevant talent. His addition is intriguing, and most of you already know why.

He and new Eagles tailback Saquon Barkley have something in common. Both played for the New York Giants.

Can Parris Campbell save his NFL career as a member of the Eagles (and maybe join Saquon Barkley in embarrassing the Giants?

Days pass, and Giants fans are still reeling from the news that their best player on offense, Barkley, left town to join the Eagles. We have loved every second of it, especially seeing reports that Saquon's beautiful daughter delivered the final blow to Big Blue.

Gosh that's fantastic! Sorry... We got off topic there. That's right! We were discussing Parris.

Campbell's name is one we know, more so for what he was supposed to do with the New York Giants (and didn't) than for anything he ever accomplished with the Indianapolis Colts. After four years in Indy, the former Ohio State Buckeye joined the G-Men and appeared in 12 games with three starts. He was only able to muster 20 receptions and 104 yards receiving.

With Philly, Campbell gets a third opportunity to achieve NFL stardom after winning a College Football Playoff National Championship with the Buckeyes (2015) and earning First-Team All-Big Ten honors after his final run with Ohio State (2018).

Campbell's pro career hasn't gone as planned, but if he and Saquon Barkley join forces to embarrass the Giants twice this year, no Eagles fan is going to remember anything he did with the Colts or as a member of the G-Men while playing on the opposing sideline.

Regardless of how it turns out, here's what we know. Campbell won't be wearing the Number 0 jersey. New Eagles edge rusher Bryce Huff has now claimed that one.
