Even in this worse-than-awful season, there is good Eagles news:

Brandon Graham, the team’s longest-tenured player on defense, earned his first Pro Bowl nomination, joined by defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and center Jason Kelce.

“This is that much more special to me because I know how much work was put in years before and even this year, knowing that my time is almost running out. It’s on me to go out and do it. We went out there and did it,” Graham told the Eagles web site.

The 32-year-old Graham, in his 11th season with the Eagles, leads the team with seven sacks and 14 tackles for loss in 2020.

“I got a real level of appreciation for making it because I know it’s not easy. You know, being an alternate is cool, but you have to hope that people back out. For this one to be outright, in a year where there’s no alternates because there’s no game because of COVID, to get that call, I really appreciate this,” Graham said. “We worked our butts off this whole offseason and during the season. To get that call is going to boost me even more for the next two games to try to go make it happen and get into these playoffs.”
