Eagles name Sheldon Brown as honorary captain for this Sunday

The Eagles have named former cornerback Sheldon Brown as their honorary Captain this Sunday. The Philadelphia defense has looked a little bleak so far with injuries and a lack of pass rush, so whilst Brown was a cornerback..perhaps an appearance from the man who delivered THIS incredible hit on Saints star Reggie Bush may just inspire them to do the same…

What better way to send a message to your opponent who are also 1-3 than to honour the man who delivered one of the most devastating tackles in franchise history to one of the most illustrated running backs of a generation?

Sheldon Brown played for the Eagles in eight seasons and had 26 interceptions and over 600 tackles in his NFL career.
