That’s been the story all season for the highly regarded slugger, who has mashed at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre while waiting for an extended chance at the big-league level.
Philly ran it to success and scored a touchdown from Nick Foles to Torrey Smith. GM Howie Roseman texted her after the play (!) to let her know that one was for you, which shows just how appreciated she was. Cullen also noted to McManus she was devastated by the team’s decision to fire her.
The ring is pretty sweet too. It features a whopping 127 diamonds, a nod to the Philly Special play from the Super Bowl victory. The Eagles have done just about everything right over the last few months and it’s extending to the offseason, even when it comes to dishing out jewelry to former team employees. The karma points keep piling up in Philly.
That’s scary, especially since they’ve since upgraded that group by essentially trading in their reigning receiving touchdown leader, Sammy Watkins, for Brandin Cooks.
Cooks also would have led the Rams in touchdown catches last year after he recorded seven with the Patriots, marking the third consecutive year in which the 24-year-old 2014 first-round pick recorded at least 65 catches for 1,000-plus yards and seven or more touchdowns.
But he won’t even be the centerpiece of a core that features reigning Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley in the backfield, two other high-quality young receivers in Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods (both caught more than 65 percent of the passes thrown their way and averaged more than 13 yards per catch in 2017) and two highly drafted young tight ends in Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett.
The only other quarterback besides Brees with three 2017 Pro Bowlers in his arsenal? Kansas City Chiefs prodigy Patrick Mahomes II, who will enter his first full season as the team’s starter with one Pro Bowler at all three supporting offensive skill positions.
