Former Eagles offensive lineman Tra Thomas retired as a Philadelphia Eagle on Thursday. Words simply weren’t enough to express how much the honor meant to Thomas, who expressed deep appreciation for the team and his former coaches Andy Reid and Juan Castillo.

Congratulations to Tra Thomas, who was already forever an Eagle in our hearts and minds. Want more Philly Sports Muse? You can find me on Twitter at @sports_muse and on Facebook.
