Before officially moving on to Jacksonville, Nick Foles just wrote a thank you letter to Philly and Philly fans (this means YOU) and shared it via The Players Tribune...
Before I move on to this next chapter of my career, I want to say thank you to some of the people who have helped to make this last chapter so special.
And he saved the very best for last:
And then last but not least, I want to thank the city of Philadelphia, and Eagles fans everywhere.
Because for as much of an honor as it’s been to play for this team and this city…… the truest privilege has been over the last year, in the time since we won the Super Bowl — having Eagles fans share their stories with me. Having them remind me of how we didn’t just win the Super Bowl; we won the Eagles’ first Super Bowlever. Getting to hear from Philly natives about how their father, or father’s father, or mother, or mother’s mother, cried tears of happiness after the game. Learning about how, for most people, rooting for the Eagles is more than a decision — it’s a birthright.
Philadelphia, thank you for welcoming me into yours.
You will forever be a part of mine.
I think I speak for all of us when I say thank YOU, Nick!
