Chris Long gives bottle of whiskey to every player on the Eagles’ roster

Chris Long continues to be awesome.

Chris Long is a very generous dude. But the man who donated his entire season’s worth of paychecks to help fund scholarships isn’t done giving yet.

Now Long is giving a $130 bottle of whiskey, Crown Royal XR, to every single one of his 2018 Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles teammates.

If you count the 53-man roster alone, that’s $6,760 worth of whiskey. Add in the injured reserve and practice squad guys and that brings the total up to $9,620.

In honor of promoting their product, Crown Royal made a donation to Long’s charity.

Crown Royal donated a total of $100,000 to Waterboys, a charitable organization within the Chris Long Foundation. Waterboys has funds life-sustaining water wells for East African communities and Crown Royal helped fund two additional wells for those in need during the football season.

Great stuff.

Now Eagles players have something else to enjoy during the Thursday parade. (Not that their adult beverage options were ever going to be limited.)
