Are you even an Eagles fan if you don’t own a jersey (or some sort of tee shirt)? We have a Fanatics store with a bunch of Eagles merchandise (like hoodies, shoes, hats, tailgating gear, and more) and today we want to take a look at the most essential piece to own — the jersey.
Below are top picks for 5 of our favorite players right now.
Let’s start with the most obvious choice on the list. Carzon Wentz is the face of the franchise. He’s showing a lot of progress in Year 2. In addition to being an emerging star, Wentz seems like a good dude off the field as well. You can’t go wrong with this one. He’s going to be with the Eagles for a very long time.
The franchise quarterback’s favorite target. Ertz is finally having that breakout year everyone expected. He’s on pace for 102 catches and 1,238 yards, and 6 touchdowns this season. Ertz is really cementing himself as one of the best tight ends in the NFL. The 26-year-old is signed through 2021 so he’s sticking around.
Jenkins is one of the Eagles’ defensive captains. He’s a leader in the locker room and a great player on the field. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz recently said Jenkins is playing the best football of his career.
Fletcher Cox is a beast. He’s clearly one of the Eagles’ most important players. Check out this stat from ESPN prior to the Eagles’ Week 5 game:
With Cox on the field this season (100 snaps), the Eagles have allowed 4.8 yards per play. With him off the field (129 snaps), they've allowed 7.3 yards per play.
Cox signed a $100 million extension last offseason. He’s still only 26 years old and his deal runs through 2022 so he’ll be around for a long time.
This is the safest Eagles jersey purchase. Being that he’s a former player, you don’t have to worry about Dawkins getting hurt or traded or getting in trouble off the field. Dawk was simply one of the best Eagles to ever play in Philly. He’s bound to get enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame one of these years. Make sure you get your jersey now so you’ll have it in time for the celebration.
