A Look Back At Homecoming 2016

On Thursday, August 11th, the Philadelphia Eagles hosted the annual *Legends Homecoming *during the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. For the first time in many years, Homecoming was held at a game, rather than a Training Camp Open Practice. In total, 50 former Eagles took part in the night, the most attendees on record for an Eagles Homecoming.

The night was highlighted by a pregame reception in the Red Zone South Lounge, where the Legends had an opportunity to catch up with old teammates. Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie, President Don Smolenski, and Executive Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman all stopped by to visit with the group.

Following the reception, the Legends and their guests enjoyed watching team warm-ups from the Eagles bench area. Shortly before kickoff, former RB Major Everett represented the group as Honorary Captain during the coin toss.

At Halftime, each Legend was introduced at midfield and the fans at Lincoln Financial Field were thrilled to see so many familiar faces. Thank you again to everyone listed below who participated! We hope to have even more of you involved next year!
