So much for Myles Jack kickstarting his career in Philadelphia.
The 27-year-old former second-round pick, who just signed with the Eagles earlier this month, has decided to hang up the cleats rather than stick around in Philly and try to help the defending NFC champs capture a Super Bowl.
Just a few weeks ago, Jack made headlines when it was revealed that he had been considering a career as a plumber before deciding to sign with the Eagles.
Jack had been released by the Pittsburgh Steelers back in March. He began his career in Jacksonville, as the 36th overall pick of the 2016 Draft. The linebacker out of UCLA was a key part of the Jags’ “Sacksonville” defense that helped take the team to the AFC championship during the 2017 season. However, he was released by the team following the 2021 season and started 13 games for the Steelers in 2022.
There’s always the chance that Jack decides to attempt a comeback. For now, it seems likely that he’ll go back to plan B and work as a plumber. So if you have a drain that needs to be unclogged, you know who to call.
