Former Eagles first round pick officially hangs up his cleats for a water hose

danny watkinWe all remember Danny Watkins, the Philadelphia Eagles first round pick.  He was a canadian center with a huge heart and a love for firefighting.  Well today he will finally consider his NFL career over, and work doing what he loves.

Almost a year ago, #Eagles cut ex-1st round OL Danny Watkins. Now, he’s done with football, working as a firefighter in Dallas & very happy

Watkins did not really pan out in the NFL after injuries, but it is great to see someone doing what they love to do.
