Eagles linebacker Shaq Leonard chooses jersey number ahead of debut vs. Cowboys

The Eagles have a former All-Pro linebacker on the roster, adding the versatile Shaquille Leonard to the roster after he chose Philadelphia over Dallas.

Leonard is preparing to take the field for his first practice in Philadelphia, and he’ll wear the No. 50, according to the team’s official website.

Leonard will likely start opposite Zach Cunningham, and the duo should help alleviate the lack of communication witnessed in the Eagles 42-19 loss to the 49ers.

Notable players to wear the No. 50 in Philadelphia include Kiko Alonso, Garry Cobb, Guy Morriss, and Casey Matthews.
