While his accomplishments are undoubtedly impressive, Douglas is often known not so much for his Pro Bowl seasons and performances on the field as for his genuine love for the Eagles franchise. After a largely quiet 2003 effort with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Douglas had his agent orchestrate an immediate return to Philly, even though the team chose not to re-sign him the year before and allowed him to leave and sign with the Jaguars when his contract expired. Also, the Eagles were largely settled at the defensive end position. Many also speculate that Douglas could easily have continued his career in 2005 but instead opted to remain with the Eagles in a different role.
