Two former Eagles to be inducted into team Hall of Fame on October 14th
During halftime of the Philadelphia Eagles preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Philadelphia Eagles announced the next two inductions into their Hall of Fame. After no inductions during the 2020 season, former offensive linemen Jon Runyan and Tra Thomas will get the nod into Philly’s Hall of Fame. They will be joining such legends as Harold Carmichael, Donovan McNabb, and numerous others.
Runyan played in Philly from 2000 until 2008, being named to a Pro Bowl during his time with the Eagles. The offensive tackle was a staple of Donovan McNabb’s offensive line for the majority of his career in Philadelphia and is considered one of the best in Eagles history.
Joining Runyan is his fellow teammate in the trenches, Tra Thomas. Tra was the tackle opposite of Runyan, providing help on one of the best lines in the NFL for numerous years. The first-round pick from Florida State played for a little over a decade in Philly before leaving after 2008 alongside Runyan. Over that time, he was named to three Pro Bowls and an All-Pro team.
The last Eagle to be inducted was wideout Bobby Walston during the 2019 season. The two will be inducted on October 14th when Philadelphia takes on the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
