What an amazing start to the weekend as the Eagles announced on Saturday that they have agreed to terms with Brandon Graham on a one-year contract extension for the 2024 season, securing that the defensive end will be back for a franchise-record 15th season.

"I'm happy to stay here and finish out my career," Graham said on the phone. "My career is a big testament to the organization."

One of the most beloved players of this generation, the team's first-round draft pick in 2010 secured his legacy with the strip-sack of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Super Bowl LII to help bring the first Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia in the 2017 season.

This past year, Graham set the franchise record for most regular-season games played with 195. He will surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik by playing in his 15th season with the Eagles.

Graham noted that this will be his final NFL season.

"I can't wait to just go out there and take it all in for my last go around," he said. "This is more about going out there and enjoying the time that I've had."

With that in mind, the five-time team captain wants to make sure that the future of the locker room is in good hands once he exits.

"You definitely want to leave this place better than when you came in," Graham said. "I'm just going to be pouring into the guys, trying to get them to realize what they got in front of them, that these opportunities don't come often when you got a good team, so let's take full advantage of the moment."

Here's a look at some of BG's other amazing accomplishments:
