EAGAN, Minn. – Jordan Hicks teamed with Mychal Kendricks in Philadelphia from 2015 to 2017.
Now he returns to the “City of Brotherly Love” as a first-time opponent. At least he’ll have Kendricks’ younger brother, Eric, as a winger.
from minnesota Monday night football will mark Hicks’ first return to “The Linc” since his final season with the Eagles in 2018. He played one game against Philadelphia during his time with the Cardinals (2019-2021), but that was in Arizona.
Hicks, who was drafted 84th overall by Philadelphia in 2015, spoke to members of the Twin Cities media on Thursday about his comeback – and being the recipient of a raucous fanbase that makes things difficult for opponents.
“I have a lot of great memories there, a lot of great people that I still know on that team, and I’m really excited,” Hicks said. “Every time you play against an old team or play in your hometown, it means a little bit more.
“I imagine it’s going to be pretty hostile, which is exciting because every time that juice is there, it just amplifies you,” he added. “It will be the first time I come back to this side.”
In four seasons with the Eagles, Hicks appeared in 43 games (40 starts) and totaled 254 tackles, 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, nine fumble recoveries and seven interceptions.
