Eagles receiver Alshon Jeffrey shared images of the mural on his Instagram account. The mural contains three images: one with him from his playing days at Lower Merion High School, one of him in a Lakers uniform, and one with him in an Eagles jersey.

New Eagles cornerback Darius Slay, who is a Kobe Bryant fan, will wear the No. 24 jersey this year to honor the late Kobe Bryant.
"He's a true competitor," Slay said. "He worked on his craft, and I believe that the work you put in is what you get out of it."
