IRECENTLY retired from teaching. I thought I would never want another full-time job again - until now. But I'm willing to suit up for the next game for Coach Reid. I was going to wait until training camp and be a walk-on, but I see that the Eagles need my services NOW! I'm tough enough - I taught middle-school science.

I'm a distraught fan ready to take the bruises to get the Eagles to the next level. Coach Reid, just say the word or give the Eagle signal (like the Bat signal), and I'll come running. And I'm not the only retiree ready. There are hundreds like me - ready, willing and able.
