EAGLES HURTS TO 35-YEAR-OLD GRAHAM: ‘LET’S GO OUT WITH A BANG’!

By Max Harper

The Eagles had their annual uniform photo shoot last week and quarterback Jalen Hurts took to his Instagram story to share an image of him and veteran defensive end Brandon Graham.

He also wrote a sweet message: “The Last Dance! Let’s Go Out With A Bang Old Man!”

The Eagles re-signed Graham, 35, to a one-year extension during NFL free agency.

Once his contract expires in 2025, Graham is expected to officially retire.

Graham has only grown to love the city of Philly more and more since the Eagles selected him with the 13th overall pick in the 2010 draft.

He admitted it took a few seasons to earn the city’s respect, but now he wouldn’t want to be or play anywhere else.

“Man, Philly has always been the only option since I got here,” Graham said back in March, via the “PHLY Sports” podcast.

“I really just feel like I’m so welcome here. It didn’t start so good but winning the Super Bowl definitely changed my mind about this city. And then me sacking Tom Brady and that helped my cost, but man it was tough in the beginning. But now, things have been forgiven and it’s been so welcoming. I’m just trying to make sure that Philly knows that. That I’m going to ride with them until the end.”

Graham was active for all 17 games in 2023, though limited to playing just 34 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. He still managed to log 16 combined tackles, three sacks, and six QB hits with the little action he did see.
