Brian Westbrook and A.J. Feeley will join a team of former Eagles and face off against the Wounded Warrior Amputees Football Team in a charity flag football game July 7.

The Tribute to Heroes Flag Football Challenge will take place before the Soul host the Orlando Predators at the Wells Fargo Center.

"I am truly honored and humbled to join Ron Jaworski, Sal Paolantonio and my fellow NFL and Eagles Alumni in this game," said Brian Westbrook. “I hope every Eagles fan and every fan of the men and women in the United States Military will come out and see us play."

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team's mission is to raise awareness and support for wounded veterans and their families. The team is made up of service members who have served and now use a prosthetic device to engage in everyday life activities.

The WWAFT currently stands at 7-0 against NFL alumni teams, having defeating teams at the last three Super Bowls, as well as contests in Green Bay, Washington, D.C., Tampa and Atlanta.
