In a truly classy move, former Philadelphia Eagles right-back Brandon Brooks took out a promotional page to thank the fans who have shown him so much love over the years.
On Thursday, Brooks made the move pretty good, pulling out a full-page ad in Philadelphia Inquirer to thank everyone in the city for treating him like family since 2016.
Brandon Brooks thanks Eagles loyalists for being the greatest fans in the world
In his ad, Brooks calls the good people of Philadelphia the greatest fans in the world. Few could argue that the people of that city displayed an unrealistic passion for their teams, something Brooks could see up close and personal.
After spending the first four years of his career with the Houston Texans, Brooks played for the Eagles from 2016 to 2021, where he won the Pro Bowler three times. Brooks also has a Super Bowl ring to his name after Philadelphia beat New England in February 2018.
While Brooks has many great memories with the team, the past two seasons have certainly been very difficult for him. In June 2020, he suffered an Achilles tear and was ruled out for the year. Then, in the last campaign, he had a chest stretch on Week 2 and was admitted to the Wounded Reserve.
Injuries began to pile up on him, which is what caused him to retire. Even so, Brooks can proudly call himself a Super Bowl champion and he will always have a huge amount of love for Philadelphia and all its fans.
