The 2018 NFL Draft came and went this past weekend and former NFL kicker David Akers embraced his opportunity to be like a professional wrestler and turn heel Friday night.
Akers appeared on stage during the second round of the 2018 NFL draft as the Philadelphia Eagles guest picker (FYI, he spent the majority of his career with the Eagles). Akers brought the heat as he spoke the Dallas Cowboys fans inside AT&T Stadium before announcing the Eagles’ pick at No. 49 overall.
Akers opened up by saying “What’s up, Dallas?” “We heard you in Philly last year. I like standing up here before you as an undrafted free agent, representing that shield for 15 years. Tonight, I’m representing the Philadelphia Eagles, NFC East champs. Divisional champs. NFC champs. And world champs! The world champs!”
“Hey Dallas, the last time you won the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren’t born.”
After that Akers announced South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert as the Eagles’ pick.
Looks like Akers got payback following Drew Pearson’s trolling last year when the NFL Draft was held in Philadelphia, it’s safe to say the two sides are even now.
