After being snubbed in 2017, there will be two Eagles entering Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. 

After Terrell Owens announced his admission to the hall, reports emerged that Weapon X will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame:

Dawkins ranks sixth in Eagles history in tackles, sixth in fumble recoveries, second in passes defensed, second in interceptions, and first in forced fumbles. Dawkins amassed 1131 tackles, 26 sacks, 37 interceptions, and 36 forced fumbles in his 16-year NFL career. 

Dawkins was selected to nine pro bowls, four times as a first team all-pro, two times as a second team all-pro, the NFL's all-decade team for the 2000s, the Eagles 75th anniversary team, and had his number 20 retired by the Eagles in 2012. Dawkins currently serves as the Eagles' Executive of Football Operations for Player Development.

The members of the Hall of Fame class of 2018 are set to be officially announced tonight at NFL Honors. You can see the entire class below:
