On Tuesday, it was announced by retired Philadelphia Eagles’ QB Ron Jaworski that they are bringing the NFL Experience to the city of “Brotherly Love.” “It is just a great opportunity for the city of Philadelphia to show itself off. We had the pope, then the DNC, and now the NFL Draft, so we’re looking forward to it,” Jaws said.
There will be many main attractions that fans can enjoy, as well as active and retired players coming into town to show love and signing autographs. “The NFL does a tremendous job, and it’s going to be free!,” Jaws said. “There will be NFL alumni there, there will be interactive games there, people will be involved with the festivities surrounding the National Football League and the NFL draft.”
“We have partnered so closely with the Eagles. There will be Eagles legends and current players throughout – Jaws and others – signing autographs and connecting with fans out there, creating an experience like no other,” said NFL Sr. VP of Events Peter O’Reilly.
The very first NFL Draft was held in Philadelphia at the Ritz-Carlton back in 1936 and to bring it back has excited fans all around the world.
As the road to the NFL Draft continues, it will be interesting to see how fans react when the Eagles draft their first pick.
