10 Eagles who made a huge impact in a very short time


10 Eagles who made a huge impact in a very short time originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Haason Reddick was here just two years but piled up 27 sacks, 3 ½ more in the postseason, played in a Super Bowl and in 2022 finished fourth in Defensive Player of the Year balloting.

Quite an Eagles career compacted into two seasons.

The Reddick trade got us thinking about other Eagles who made a big impact on the franchise despite spending a brief amount of time with the Eagles.

And we thought, as we often do, “Hey, let’s come up with a list!”

So for the purposes of this article, we found 10 Eagles who spent two or fewer years here but still made a significant contribution. Even if they spent a third year here just in training camp, they’re disqualified. These are just guys who were part of the franchise for two seasons.

LeGarrette Blount [2017]: The Eagles got by with Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood as the running backs in 2016, but with Mathews out of the picture and Sproles turning 34 before the 2017 season began, the Eagles had to beef the position up. Jay Ajayi would arrive after the season began, but in mid-May – two months after the start of free agency – they snapped up Blount, who had rushed for an NFL-best 18 touchdowns the year before with the Patriots for the budget price of $1.25 million, barely above minimum wage. Blount rushed for 766 yards with a 4.4 average during his one season with the Eagles, and in the Super Bowl, facing his former team, he ran 14 times for 90 yards, including a 36-yarder to set up a Nick Foles TD pass to Alshon Jeffery and a 21-yard TD, and his 6.4 rushing average remains 10th-highest in Super Bowl history. The Eagles moved forward the next year with Josh Adams, Core Clement, Ajayi and Smallwood, and Blount finished his career with one more season with Detroit.
