“Credit to him,” head trainer Nick Sirianni mentioned. “He made the kick in a huge moment. He made another kick in a big moment, too, and he was perfect on the extra points. The guys really embraced him. They put their arms around him. That’s our team. They made him feel welcome. Arryn (Siposs) and Rick (Lovato) took him under their arms. Jake gave him support. They embraced him, but all the credit goes to him and the whole special teams unit that was involved in that.”

Elliott’s ankle saved him out of motion closing week however he’ll go back someday quickly after which the Eagles received’t want Dicker anymore. But his NFL debut will most likely give him long run alternatives somewhere else and he’ll all the time be a component of the Eagles’ 2022 tale.
