In one week from today, the Philadelphia Eagles will wrap up their 2018 offseason workout program with the final day of mandatory minicamp practice. Players and coaches will get an opportunity to rest up for a month before returning to the NovaCare Complex in late July for training camp.
But before the Eagles head out for vacation, they’ll receive a pretty cool parting gift on Thursday night: their Super Bowl rings.
After the White House mess this week, the Eagles are looking forward to next week. It’s minicamp Tuesday through Thursday. On Thursday night, they’ll receive their Super Bowl rings.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) June 6, 2018
In case you forgot, the Eagles are receiving these rings because they defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. That’s right, the Eagles won the Super Bowl. For the first time in franchise history.
The Eagles underwent some ring sizing back in late April. It remains to be seen what the exact championship ring design will look like, so it’ll be exciting to see the reveal.
These rings serve to remind everyone of the Eagles’ special accomplishment last season. Hopefully they’ll also inspire players to go out and get some more.
