David Akers, who until this offseason was the longest current tendered athlete in Philadelphia, recently signed on with the San Francisco 49ers. However, he's leaving Philly in perhaps the classiest way an athlete ever has. He's purchased a billboard saying thanks for 12 great years to the city of Philadelphia and Eagles fans. I'm not sure where it will be, but he tweeted out a picture this afternoon.
I think everyone would join me in saying, "No, David Akers... thank you!"
