So, how are those former Philadelphia Eagles doing in their new cities with their new teams?
Whether we're discussing high school alma maters, collegiate stomping grounds, or our favorite NFL teams, it's hard to deny that we take our allegiances seriously. The names on the back of the jerseys may change, but we'll never abandon our Philadelphia Eagles.
Of all of the constants in the current NFL, the most common just might be the knowledge that, at some point, things will change. Roster turnover is a part of the deal. Familiar faces to the many members of the loyal Birds army will move on and play in other cities.
While enjoying a 2-0 start and watching some stress-free football on Sunday, we took some time to check in on some former Eagles to see how they're doing.
1. Miles Sanders, Carolina Panthers
This story originally dropped before we knew the result of the Carolina Panthers versus New Orleans Saints game. That one was a 7:15 p.m. EST kickoff. As you may have expected, we paid a lot of attention to Miles Sanders and how he did.
In Week 1, he turned in 72 yards on 18 carries and four receptions for 26 yards. He took a step backward on Monday Night Football notching 43 yards on 14 totes and three receptions for four yards.
The Panthers are home to another familiar face (more on that later), but here's a look at a few other former Eagles and how they're performing in their new cities.
