Former Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers has had the best moment of the second night of the NFL Draft. The draft is being held this year at Jerry’s World at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The Cowboys and the Eagles hate each other. It’s one of the best rivalries in the NFL.
With the Eagles second round pick — following a trade up — Akers decided to burn the Cowboys before making the pick.
Everything that Akers said, though, at the podium is the truth. He made sure to rub it in despite boos from Cowboys fans.
The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in February.
Akers was not done, as he said, “The last time the Cowboys were in the Super Bowl, these players were not even born.”
Akers helped the Eagles select tight end Dallas Goedert. They jumped in front of the Cowboys to make the selection, as Dallas reportedly lost tight end Jason Witten for a Monday Night Football analyst job.
Last year when the NFL Draft was at the Art Museum in Philadelphia, former Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson roasted the Eagles before his selection. This was pay back — and it was even worse by Akers, because the Eagles won the Super Bowl months ago, while the Cowboys have not won since 1995.
The 43-year-old Akers played for the Eagles from 1999 through 2010. He also played for the Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, and Detroit Lions in his playing career. He played four seasons total with those teams.
As an Eagle, he was a six-time Pro Bowler. He’s the Eagles all-time leading scorer and was named to their 75th anniversary team. Akers is also in the Eagles Hall of Fame.
