Philadelphia Eagles: Chris Long rocking Allen Iverson jersey, fur coat for parade day


Chris Long and the rest of his teammates are ready for Thursday’s Philadelphia Eagles parade celebrating Super Bowl LII.

Thursday is a day Philadelphia Eagles fans have been waiting decades for as the city gets to finally celebrate with a parade following the team’s thrilling 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, the first title in franchise history. Football fans can say what they want about Eagles fans, but without question, this is arguably one of the most passionate fan bases in all of sports, and one can only imagine how crazy it’s going to be Thursday with all of the celebrating.

Philadelphia was written off by many back in December when Carson Wentz went down with a torn ACL since most fans didn’t have faith in Nick Foles being capable of leading this team on offense. But thanks to Doug Pederson and Frank Reich making the necessary adjustments before it was too late, Foles was able to pull the unimaginable by leading the Eagles to three wins as underdogs, capping off the run with a MVP performance in the Super Bowl.

While there were numerous key additions made on Philadelphia’s end last offseason, one of the most underrated moves will always be considered the decision to sign Chris Long to a two-year deal when looking at the impact he made all season. And after being fortunate enough to enjoy his first Super Bowl win last year as a member of the Patriots, Long is going all out for this year’s parade by rocking an amazing outfit that consists of an Allen Iverson jersey and a fur coat.

Long has quickly become a favorite among Philadelphia fans during his first year in the City of Brotherly Love after making the decision to donate his entire salary from this season for educational equality. To top it off, the decision by Long to rock the classic Iverson jersey shows he knows how popular the former Philadelphia 76ers star is, so this attire seems only perfect for a parade like this.
