The Philadelphia Eagles Top 10 Free Agent Signings—No. 3

Emmitt Smith Cowboys

Part 8 of 10

No. 3 William Fuller

After eight solid seasons playing for the Houston Oilers, defensive and William Fuller was signed to a three-year contract by the Eagles at the age of 32 prior to the 1994 season. It proved to be a wise move as Fuller had three of the best seasons in his career.

The fierce pass rusher disrupted opposing offenses by racking up sacks and forcing fumbles. While in a Bird's uniform, Fuller accumulated 35 1/2 sacks and forced 12 fumbles.

For his efforts, the defensive end was elected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and received several league wide honors. The Eagles defensive performance dropped off considerably over the next few seasons after his departure.
