Once an Eagle always an Eagle.

When you win the only Super Bowl in franchise history, that's the mantra.

Jalen Mills is one of us. 

As we all know, the Nick Foles experience in Jacksonville lasted just one season after signing a four-year, $88 million contract last offseason before was traded to the Bears last week for a fourth-round pick. It appears Foles will be set up for a competition with Mitchell Trubisky.

News broke earlier today that the Panthers officially released Cam Newton, which was inevitable after the team couldn't find a trade partner for the former MVP.

Former offensive guard T.J. Lang, who played for the Packers and Lions from 2009-18, offered his thoughts on the quarterback carousel that has been the 2020 free agency:

For the record, Foles' contract has been restructured, according to a report.

That's where Mills came in. He defended his former quarterback with facts only.

Lang can't really come back from that one.

It really doesn't matter what Foles does for other cities. He's a Philly legend and needs to be protected at all cost.


Great job, Jalen.
