I have some absolutely HUGE Philadelphia Eagles news for you today ... former NFL player Colton Underwood has been revealed as the new star of The Bachelor!

OMG!

Wait. Who?

You probably forgot that Underwood was even a member of the Eagles. And I can’t blame you because he was barely on the team. Underwood spent exactly six days on the Eagles’ practice squad back in September 2014. What a time it was.

Underwood also appeared on The Bachelorette last season alongside a more recognizable former Eagle: tight end Clay Harbor. It was looking like Harbor might go far into the show before getting hurt in a football game. (This isn’t a joke. He actually hurt his wrist while playing tackle football with other contestants. He even needed to have surgery.)

Anyway, this has been your extremely useful Bachelor update. For more Bachelor, follow along with SB Nation’s coverage. Because Bachelor is sports.
