PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles will honor former quarterback Randall Cunningham at halftime of their Sept. 27 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Cunningham, the Eagles quarterback from 1985-1995 and three-time Player of the Year, will be inducted into the team's Honor Roll.
"I'm so excited about this," Cunningham said from his home in Las Vegas. "I can't wait to get there. I still love Philadelphia. They retired my jersey in college (at UNLV), and that was awesome. This is even more special."
The last former player to join the Honor Roll was the late Jerome Brown, inducted in 1996.
In his 11-year Eagles career, Cunningham threw for 22,877 yards and 150 touchdowns. He also rushed for 4,482 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also played for Minnesota, Dallas and Baltimore.
