Eagles Linebacker Connor Barwin Holds Twitter Contest for Best Repurpose of His Old Texans Jersey

New Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin may be giving rookie tight end Zach Ertz a run for his money this offseason for who has the most personable social media presence.

The former Houston Texan ran a unique contest on Twitter to giveaway a couple of pairs of tickets to a concert down in the Lone Star State.

Knowing that fans often have little-to-no use for player-specific team gear once said player hits the road to play in a new city, Barwin asked his followers to come up with the best use of his old No. 98 Texans jersey. The creativity and resourcefulness of some of his followers like the winning reusable grocery bag were quite impressive.

There were also a few bizarre contest entries as well. You can go search his timeline for those.

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?

Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.

Enter Mike Trout.

The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.

First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?

And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.

We can dream, right?
