Kyzir White on winning NFC East title with Eagles: “Ain’t nothing better”
The Philadelphia Eagles have officially won the NFC East, and offseason addition Kyzir White is absolutely loving it.
Despite a bit of a rough patch to close the season (that was entirely overblown for the sake of clicks), White played a great game against the Giants on Sunday to help clinch the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC.
Kyzir White: “Ain’t nothing better”
Following their victory, White spoke about what the Eagles’ success has meant to him this season:
Kyzir White: "I've never been any type of champion in the NFL. To come home to Philly, do it in front of my family and friends, it's surreal. Ain't nothing better. We don't want to settle. This isn't the end of the road. We know where we want to be. We gotta keep on stepping."— Josh Tolentino (@JCTSports) January 9, 2023
After free agency didn’t go how he had hoped, White remained patient and signed a one-year deal with the Eagles last offseason. The Lehigh native has provided stability at the linebacker position, totaling 110 tackles, seven passes defended, and three QB hits while playing in all 17 games.
Prior to the season, White stated he’d be open to signing a long-term deal to remain in Philadelphia. We’ll have to see how that shakes out with LB Nakobe Dean waiting in the wings.
