K’Von Wallace has been an Eagle for just a month but now he has a permanent (and large) reminder of the Eagles on his back.
Wallace posted an Instagram story of some tattoo work he’s getting done and his entire back is getting covered in a mural of a tiger and an eagle. He played for the Clemson Tigers and now he plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.
It looks like the Eagle part is mostly finished.
Hopefully this works out better than the last time I remember a fourth-round pick getting a notable tattoo. Donnel Pumphrey once got an NFL logo tattooed on his calf and then never played in a regular season game. Wallace has a better shot though.
Wallace was a fourth-round pick last year but many thought he could have gone earlier. With some real questions at the safety position in front of him, Wallace could end up being a long-term solution.
Shortly after the Eagles drafted him, Wallace was already in love with the fan base.
“It's crazy to see,” he said. “The Eagles fan base is the best I've seen. It's up there with Clemson, man. Just seeing how they supported me even before I got drafted. During the first round they were telling the coaches to pull the trigger, and all these fans, DM’ing me on Instagram and saying, ‘We can't wait for you to be an Eagle.’ The fan base is incredible. It's incredible.”
Y’all know I gotta represent the gang 💚🦅 https://t.co/sfMR1TcZ9k— #KMasterLock™$$ (@KVonWallace) May 26, 2020
