Eagles set to induct Jon Runyan and Tra Thomas into their Hall of Fame

Two original staples of dominant offensive line play in Philadelphia are set to be inducted into the Eagles Ring of Honor.

During halftime of the preseason opener against the Steelers, Philadelphia announced that Jon Runyan and Tra Thomas would join Donovan McNabb and others in the team’s Hall of Fame.

A talented and rugged left tackle, Thomas was the Eagles’ first-round pick (No. 11 overall) in 1998 out of Florida State.

Runyan joined the franchise as a free agent after leaving the Titans/Oilers, where he was drafted in the fourth round of the 1996 NFL Draft. For years, Thomas and Runyan protected Donovan McNabb, leading the Eagles to five NFC East titles, five NFC Championship Games, and one Super Bowl appearance in 2004.

Both players will be inducted during Philadelphia’s Thursday night matchup against the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers in Week 6 at Lincoln Financial Field.
