Philadelphia teams continue to win in the transaction market. It all started with a trade for Golden Tate back on October 31st. Even though it took the rest of the season to adjust, Tate sealed a playoff win advancing the Eagles to the divisional round.
What followed was a Sixers trade 12 days later for Jimmy Butler. Then came a deadline deal for Tobias Harris while the Phillies traded for JT Realmuto in their offseason just a day later.
Now as the Eagles (in full offseason mode) get ready for the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, another Superstar is coming to Philadelphia! Enter Bryce Harper who, in case you live under a rock, has agreed to a 13 year, $330-million dollar deal with the Phillies.
Here are the best social media reactions from your favorite Eagles players on the news that Harper will sign the largest North-American sports contract in history (fully guaranteed too!) with the Phillies:
