And if you wanna go really deep, here is a video from the Eagles on all that went into making the rings.
219 diamonds. 17 green sapphires. And 1 dog mask.
Look, you never know when you’re going to get another Super Bowl ring, so why not dress in your flyest suit when it’s time to get one? All players came in clean, but Malcolm Jenkins, LeGarrette Blount, and Brent Celek were easily the best dressed.
A week ago, the Philadelphia Eagles’ — or at least Nick Foles’ — visit to the White House was canceled. This week, the entire team got together to celebrate its first ever Super Bowl victory when the players received their championship rings Thursday night.
In some ways, though, the festivities haven’t stopped. As soon as the Eagles sealed their 41-33 win over the New England Patriots, the party erupted on the field, in the locker room, and on the streets of Philadelphia (horse poop consumption and greased-up poles included).
President Donald Trump asked NFL players who to pardon. Here’s how they responded
The president wanted recommendations. He got them from the Players’ Coalition.
In order to do that, he must lead.
David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Aaron Donald, and other stars are also looking to get money and security this offseason. Salaries in the NFL are going to continue to rise, and in a league where contracts aren’t guaranteed, players have to get their money when they can, and avoid injury when possible.
It’s easy for fans and media to play up a contract dispute. The NFL offseason can get boring, and people need something to talk about. Jones is a superstar player who will go down as one of the best Falcons to ever wear the red and black. If there’s even a sniff of something like a contract dispute, no matter the circumstances between the two sides, people will drench it in gas and attempt to throw a match to it, because that’s a fun thing to do when you’re bored.
The NFL enacted its controversial rule May 24, striking a compromise between owners and the league’s front office that gives teams the choice to remain in the locker room for the pregame ceremony — but also gives the league the authority to fine teams if players do not show respect during the anthem. The rule also gives teams the power to punish players who violate the rule.
