Jordan Mailata is the Eagles’ 23-year-old ex-rugby player turned offensive lineman.
That’s not how he wants to be known anymore, though.
Now, he wants to be judged on his merits as a football player, and things are going pretty well on that front.
That doesn’t mean he can’t still call on his rugby past when the opportunity presents itself.
@Eagles @jordan_mailata just needs to keep playing. His sets are consistent; his power immense. The more he plays the more natural he looks. There are building blocks on this team. Big test v a very good player @saints on Sunday #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/MyeJy8lrt3
