Detmer spent nine seasons with the Eagles from 1997-2005 and spent training camp and preseason with the team in 2006 before being released prior to the start of the regular season.


  • Served as the holder vs. NYG (1/7-WC) in his first game since resigning with the Eagles on January 2nd and helped David Akers to go 3/3 on field goal attempts, which included a game-winning 38-yard FG with no time left on the game clock

As he tried to brace himself from a hit after releasing a pass attempt, his left arm was driven into the turf and the elbow was dislocated. Earned "Horse Trailer" POG honors for his efforts
