The Eagles need a new starting safety. With only a few days left before the start of NFL free agency, it looks like Walter Thurmond will hit the market. One of Philadelphia's options is George Iloka. Earlier this week we explained why Iloka makes sense for the Eagles. He's very popular among the fans:
To their credit, Eagles fans are trying to do their part to bring him to Philly. Credit to @FJB428 for being the first to realize Iloka's direct messages are open on Twitter, meaning that anyone can send him (@George_iloka) a private message

Iloka is expected to have a competitive market so the Eagles might not get him, but at least the fans can say they tried.
