When the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football, all-time great Eagles players and potential future Hall of Famers were in attendance.
Before the game started, an iconic level photo was taken with some of the best NFL Wide Receivers who have played over the last 20 years:
New Eagles wide receiver Julio Jones (left) made the 904th reception of his career on Sunday Night Football, which is the 23rd all-time in NFL history. Jones, a two-time first-team All-Pro, stands next to another two-time All-Pro receiver: Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson was one of the best wide receivers in the NFL from 2003-09.
Johnson, who is 38th in NFL history in pass catches, was in attendance on behalf of EA Sports Madden NFL 24. He even surprised Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts in the tunnel before the game:
On the far right of the Wide Receivers photo is the man known as “DJax”: Desean Jackson has the third most receiving yards in Eagles history and the sixth most receptions in Eagles history. Jackson is one of the greatest deep threat receivers in NFL history. He shared a moment with another all-time great Eagles wide receiver, Mike Quick (the sixth photo if you scroll):
Of course, when talking about all the future Hall of Famers, it would be a major oversight not to mention five-time first-team All-Pro Center Jason Kelce. The 35-year-old University of Cincinnati player recently broke the Eagles franchise record for most consecutive games started and has now been the Eagles’ starting center for 146 consecutive games. Like everyone else last night, future Pro Football Hall of Famer Kelce looked fresh in Kelly Green uniforms:
So that’s a total of four players from Lincoln Financial Field for Sunday Night Football who could one day land in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. At least two of them (Kelce and Jackson) will soon be in the Eagles franchise Hall of Fame.
