The NFL announced Monday that former Eagles wide receiver James Thrash was named an appeals officer for on-field player discipline.
Thrash spent 12-years in the NFL, three with the Birds and nine with the Redskins. During his three years in Philadelphia, 2001-2003, he accumulated 2,026 yards and 15 touchdowns on 164 passes caught as one of Donovan McNabb’s primary receivers.
His playing career ended following the 2008 season due to failing a physical because of a neck injury. He moved into a player development role for Washington, helping players with finances and continuing education before spending three years on the NFL player engagement staff.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks will join trash in the role.
