Carter, while becoming a household name while playing with the Vikings, was drafted by the Eagles in the fourth round in 1987's Supplemental Draft. In his three years with the Eagles, Carter played in 41 games, caught 89 passes for 1,450 yards and 19 touchdowns. Carter was surprisingly cut following the 1989 season. He was picked up by the Vikings where he went on to have eight Pro Bowl seasons.

Robinson didn't play for the Eagles, but he did go to college at Penn State. During his time there, he played both offensive tackle and defensive end. He played for head coach Rip Engle and then-assistant coach Joe Paterno. During his time at Penn State, he was named an All-American, he was the Newark Athletic Club's College Player of the Year and he was named the College Lineman of the Year by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association. He went on to play for the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins in the NFL.
