The Philadelphia Eagles play a massive role for most Philly sports fans.
If you become an Eagles legend, that city will love you forever.
One player that is beloved by many Philly fans is former Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.
You can find many Philadelphia players supporting their fellow teams throughout the season.

For those who may not know, Julie Ertz is a key United States Women’s National Soccer team member.
She and Zach are both well-known in their respective sports.
Zach played for the Eagles for nine seasons, and he was always a reliable player.
Now as a member of the Arizona Cardinals, Ertz is still welcomed back to Philly with open arms.
Ertz was a key player when the team made a miraculous run to take down Tom Brady in the Super Bowl a few years back.
Also, his stats rank up with some of the best in Eagles history.
Ertz is second all-time in receptions with 579, and he is fifth in receiving yards with 6,267, and seventh in touchdowns with 38.
Once Ertz decides to retire you can assume he will become a member of the Eagles Hall of Fame.
He might even get his jersey retired by the organization.
Ertz is scheduled to return to Philadelphia this year as a member of the Cardinals.
But, for now, Philadelphia fans can support Ertz as he attempts to throw a strike on his first pitch.NEXT: Eagles Coach Has A Clear Opinion About Jalen Carter's Conditioning
