Honor Roll linebacker Bill Bergey will serve as the team’s honorary alumni captain this Sunday against the New York Jets. There will be a tribute to the former All-Pro linebacker at halftime on the Miller Lite Flight Deck. For those who are not attending the game, the tribute will be broadcast live on PhiladelphiaEagles.com.
The Eagles parted with two first-round picks (1977, 1978) and a second rounder (1978) to acquire Bergey in a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals in 1974. He then went on to lead the Eagles in tackles six times while registering 18 interceptions. During his seven-year stint in Philadelphia, Bergey earned four Pro-Bowl bids, two All-Pro selections and was voted team MVP three times. He was inducted into the franchise’s Honor Roll in 1988.
