With the Eagles’ Super Bowl win, they replaced their 24-year old franchise quarterback with a 27-year old backup. As a result, Philadelphia has now lost its defensive leader to Indianapolis in one of the biggest trades ever made by an NFL team.
The “eagles super bowl wins” is the Philadelphia Eagles winning their first ever Super Bowl. The Eagles lost their defensive leader, Malcolm Jenkins to the Indianapolis Colts in free agency.
Rodney McLeod, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive captain, has everyone pulling together for the team.
When a report disclosed the news that everyone had been waiting for, emotions erupted all over social media. After six years and one Super Bowl triumph with the Philadelphia Eagles, Rodney McLeod is leaving the team.
The Eagles never made an offer to the 31-year-old safety, which allowed the Indianapolis Colts to sign him as a free agent. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media was the first to disclose the move. McLeod retweeted it, and Darius Slay, as well as a slew of other Philly fans, swiftly responded with a thank-you tweet. The defensive captain was adored for all of his intangibles, particularly his off-the-field efforts with Change Our Future, and he stepped in to fill Malcolm Jenkins’ leadership hole.
God will see it through.

McLeod played in 75 games for the Eagles throughout his career, despite undergoing two grueling knee operations over the course of four years. He has 347 total tackles, 11 interceptions, four forced fumbles, and two sacks to his credit. Perhaps his most notable performance came in Super Bowl LII, when he stuffed Brandin Cooks on a critical 3rd-and-2.
Following the wild-card playoff defeat to Tampa Bay in January, he appeared to realize that the writing was on the wall. The University of Virginia product spoke briefly about his future plans and the feelings he had throughout his final game.
“Every year, the waters shift.” “I don’t know what my future holds here,” McLeod told reporters, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia. “If this is the final time for me, this is not how I intended it to go.” But, wow, I’m proud of my troops at the end of the day. “I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished this year and what we’ve been able to do with this group.”

The Eagles are looking to make a change at safety.
It’s unclear if Philadelphia tried to entice him back with a team-friendly offer. There has been no mention of anything. With McLeod gone, the team’s safety depth chart is razor-thin coming into the 2022 season, with Anthony Harris and Marcus Epps at the top. K’Von Wallace, a third-year safety, is also on the roster.
Free agent DB, according to sources Tyrann Mathieu paid the #Eagles a virtual visit, as Philly has emerged as a top destination for one of the top free agents. This week, the Honey Badger paid a visit to the #Saints, and now he’s zoomed in on Philly. His business is booming.

Tyrann Mathieu, a high-priced free agent option, is still available. The three-time Pro Bowler paid the Eagles a virtual visit, and the two sides are still in contact. Philadelphia and New Orleans figure to be the frontrunners for Mathieu’s services. Last season, he had 76 tackles, three interceptions, and three passes defensed.
Could a Notre Dame stud be on his way to Philadelphia?
Kyle Hamilton of Notre Dame was expected to be ruled out of Philly’s first-round matchup. Most mock drafts see him going in the top five, with the Detroit Lions as high as No. 2. “It’s not going to happen,” Mel Kiper Jr. said of dropping all the way to No. 15: “It’s not going to happen.” He’s going to go two, I believe. And if he doesn’t go two, he’ll go three or four.”
Following Hamilton’s underwhelming performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, the debate is beginning to shift. According to Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, the top-rated safety is expected to drop out of the top-10. The Eagles have the 15th and 18th picks, respectively.
Kyle Hamilton is one of my favorite players, but this seems to be the case after the combine and pro day. I believe we, I, and the media have a better opinion of him than what I’ve heard from clubs in the previous week. It just takes one, but outside of the top ten selections, reality is more plausible. https://t.co/VoBXMhW7ik
