Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was among those who showed up to the viewing being held on Friday afternoon for fallen Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Wilson III. Wilson was tragically shot and killed last Thursday inside of a GameStop in North Philadelphia while purchasing a game for his son.

Kelly came to pay his respects but he didn't come empty handed. He had a special gift:
It looks like he didn't just make a brief appearance either. He stayed around to talk to some of Wilson's fellow officers.

Very nice gesture by the Eagles coach on a sad day for Philadelphia.
