It seems as though the NFL is “Copping a Feeley” with A.J. Feeley.


Sometimes, second really is the best, especially when you keep getting a chance with a different team every few years.


Feeley has already been with three teams before the age of 31: The Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and the San Diego Chargers.


Feeley, currently the second-string quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, always seems to make an impact when he has that chance to come off the bench.


Remember when Donovan McNabb was injured in the final five games of the 2002 season?


Guess who took his place?


Yes, A.J. Feeley—not even Koy Detmer.

Feeley went 4-1 in those few short games and helped Philly secure home field advantage in the playoffs.


Where did he make the biggest impact?



Why, in Philadelphia of course.


Not only is he hot on the field, but also apparently he’s hot with the ladies, too.


Feeley previously dated Philadelphia Charge soccer player and Women’s National Team defender, Heather Mitts, for five-years. In 2004, Mitts was voted ESPN’s Hottest Female Athlete.


Feeley, being lucky, is a pretty big deal.


Now, what team is he headed to next?


The Eagles…still.


Feeley recently signed a three-year extension contract, but rumor has it that Feeley has thrown one too many interceptions and might get the boot.


He may be cold sitting on the bench, but at least it’s warm for Philly’s first-string QB when he’s about to come out.
