Philadelphia welcomed 2022 Eagles Hall of Fame inductees Trent Cole and Hugh Douglas back to Lincoln Financial Field during halftime of the Eagles’ win over the Packers last Sunday Night.

Cole and Douglas were surrounded on the field by their now-fellow Eagles Hall of Fame members David Akers, Bill Bergey, Bill Bradley, Harold Carmichael, Brian Dawkins, Ron Jaworski, Mike Quick, Clyde Simmons, Jeremiah Trotter, Tra Thomas, Jon Runyan, and Brian Westbrook.

Cole, a two-time Pro Bowler, spent 10 years with the Eagles (2005-14) before finishing his career with the Colts. A defensive standout, Cole retired from the Eagles with the second most sacks in team history with 85.5.

“It’s an honor to be here today, to make history,” Cole said in his induction speech on Sunday. “It’s been an incredible journey, a lot of people have helped me along the way…I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, to all the fans, all of Philly, all the Philly fans world-wide. It’s an incredible honor to be inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame.”

Douglas, a three-time Pro Bowler and 9-year NFL vet, spent 1998-2002, 2004 with the Eagles. Douglas also played for the Jets (1995-97) and Jaguars (2003). The defensive end was named Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press in 1995 while with the Jets. In 2000, Douglas was named first-team All-Pro and his career sack total ranks 6th in Eagles history with 54.5.

“Philadelphia, I love each and every one of you,” Douglas exclaimed in his induction speech. “I love you, I appreciate you, I appreciate you cheering for us all the time, I love you, thank you.”

We at NFL Alumni congratulate Trent Cole and Hugh Douglas on their induction into the Eagles Hall of Fame. It is a special time when one (in this case two) of our brothers are recognized for a career well served!
