We're taking a look at the best four players to have ever played for each of the 32 NFL franchises. Let's reveal the four greatest Eagles according to our Bookies.com algorithm...

The Philadelphia Eagles just came off a playoff berth in the NFC under first-year head coach Nick Sirianni. They have made lots of moves in the offseason, trading for AJ Brown from the Titans and drafting two Georgia Bulldogs in Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean.

With Jalen Hurts entering his third year under center for the Eagles, he now has more weapons and fewer excuses. While the Eagles have a lot to be excited about for the future, let's look at the best players to ever put on the Eagles jersey in the team's history.

Philadelphia Eagles NFL Ring of Honor

Player HOFm wAV Bookies Score
Reggie White 239.73 160 199.865
Brian Dawkins 97.93 104 100.965
Bob Brown 102.93 83 92.965
Jason Peters 86.43 97 91.715

No. 1 - Reggie White

Reggie White is one of the best defensive ends in NFL history. In almost every year he put on a jersey, he was in the running for Defensive Player of the Year and he was able to win the award twice. He was selected to the Pro Bowl 13 times and he made eight All-Pro first-teams. 

White led the league in sacks twice and had 15 or more sacks five times throughout his entire career with the Eagles and Packers. 

No. 2 - Brian Dawkins

One of the hardest-hitting safeties to play the game, Brian Dawkins was unstoppable for the Eagles. Dawkins earned four All-Pro first-team honors while being selected to nine Pro Bowls throughout his career. A freak of nature that could do it all, Dawkins had 37 interceptions, 19 fumble recoveries and 1,147 tackles. 

He was unable to achieve a Super Bowl win as he made it to the 2005 Super Bowl but lost to the Patriots. Dawkins did finally get his ring, however, when the Eagles defeated the Patriots in 2018 while he had a front-office job for the team.

No. 3 - Bob Brown

Bob Brown was an unbelievable tackle during his time with the Eagles. He was taken with the second overall pick in 1964, and halfway through his career, he was dealt to the Rams in a five-player trade. Before being traded to the Rams, he was incredibly successful in Philadelphia. 

The six-time Pro Bowler also received first-team All-Pro honors five times. Brown played a critical role in the offensive line and will forever be known as one of the best tackles to play the game.

No. 4 - Jason Peters

Jason Peters has had a very long career in the NFL and spent 11 of his 17 seasons with the Eagles. Originally drafted by the Bills, he was traded five years later to the Eagles for three draft picks. 

In his time in the league, he was awarded two first-team All-Pro honors to go along with his nine Pro Bowl appearances. In his tenure with the Eagles, he was a part of the Super Bowl-winning team in the 2017-18 season, when the Eagles defeated the Patriots in the famous “Philly Special” game.


Methodology

To determine the Ring of Honor for the Philadelphia Eagles, Bookies.com utilized the website, ProFootballReference.com to gather for each player: 

  1. Career Weighted Approximate Value (Career AV)
  2. Hall of Fame Monitor score

After those findings, we averaged the two data sets to develop our rankings for the players to determine the top four players included in the Ring of Honor.
