Seth Joyner, 1986 - 1993

Yes, kids. It's true. Here's a history lesson for those of you who are a little younger. Before he became everyone's favorite angry uncle, Seth Joyner was one heck of a football player.

Eight years in an Eagles jersey produced 120 regular-season appearances with 113 professional starts. 37 sacks, 17 interceptions, 21 forced fumbles, and five defensive TDs were the results of his efforts.

For much of his career in Philly, he was paired with William Thomas. Seth was the sledgehammer. Willie T became one of the great coverage linebackers the game has ever seen. Both would be brilliant in any era of Eagles football.

Bill Bradley, 1969 - 1976

Before Brian Dawkins and Malcolm Jenkins made their names as two great franchise legends, Bill Bradley became the prototypical player at the safety position. Eight of Bradley's nine NFL seasons from 1969 to 1976, were played in an Eagles jersey.

He tallied 34 interceptions during his time in the City of Brotherly Love and became the first player to lead the league in interceptions in back-to-back seasons (1971 and 1972). He earned two First-Team All-Pro nods and was named to three Pro Bowl rosters (1971–1973). He's also a member of the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame.
