The Philadelphia Eagles were Super Bowl champions last season and there were a lot of players we remember that were large contributors on that Super Bowl team. 

Malcolm Jenkins took snaps at four different positions in 2017. Jenkins played linebacker for 42 percent of the snaps, slot cornerback for 30 percent, safety for 24 percent, and outside cornerback for four percent. Jenkins finished with 69 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass deflections, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and a sack en route to another Pro Bowl selection.

Jake Elliott hit a game-winning 61-yard field goal in Week 3 against the New York Giants that propelled the Super Bowl run. 

Carson Wentz got the Eagles to an 11-2 start and the NFC East title. He completed 60.2 percent of his passes for 3,296 yards, 33 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a 101.9 passer rating in 13 games, setting the franchise record for touchdown passes in a season.

Wentz also finished first in touchdown percentage (7.5 percent), first in yards per completion (13.5), fourth in quarterback rating (101.9), and first in total quarterback rating (74.4). He also finished second in the NFL in touchdown passes (33), despite not playing the last three games.

He was the front runner for the league’s MVP award when going down, but still was an All-Pro in 2017. 

Those are the players Eagles fans definitely remember in 2017, but what about the players fans may have already forgot were on the Super Bowl team? Players come and go throughout the season, but all these players were part of the Eagles Super Bowl run in some way, shape, or form…even if they were only on the roster for one game.

We’re here to make you remember. Here are 10 Eagles players fans may have forgotten that were on the 2017 team.
