Darwin was the only current Eagle I had met. One time, I saw him at the Knoxville ariport, and he talked for five minutes to me and my then six-year old daughter. He is a classy guy and I'm sorry he is no longer an Eagle.

I wonder how Belmont Shore is taking this. He's got Walker in Canton.

Damn, I should have been the one to start this thread.

Shoot, I remember Dlinemen dropping like flies around Darwin a few years back, and the man took an absolute beating. One game I rememberhe dragged himself off the ground after a play and started hobbling towards the sidelines, only to be waved back on to the field, we didn't have anyoneone to REPLACE HIM! ANd he continued to gut it out.

I appreciate ya, D-Dub, good luck in Buffalo. We will miss "the claw".

All in all, a class guy who had some good moments with the Birds. I'll follow him with the Bills, who are on the tube every Sunday up here.

Darwin with his family, his Dad probably had that smile the whole day:

One of the better FA signings we ever made -- he was a 2nd round "bust" in Arizona who we got for jack shit in the (?) '01 offseason. Ended up giving us a pretty solid tenure at his position. 6 years is a full career for most DT prospects these days between injuries and dropoff (or, per Corey Simon, addon).

i thought he was a waiver wire pickup -- released by the Cardinals, picked up by the Eagles. a great, great pickup.

I met the two men to the left of Darwin. I chatted with them and a couple other family members after a game in Atlanta a couple years ago. His father was very nice. I wish I had a camera at the time, so I would have a picture titled "The Walker Family". (same last name)

Thanks Mr. Walker. Good luck with the new team (except when facing the Eagles!)
