Philadelphia Eagles Chris Long won his second Super Bowl in two years and celebrated by hooking every player on the Eagles team up with a rare bottle of Crown Royal XR. In 2016 he won a Super Bowl with the Patriots. Following that season, Long signed a 2-year contract with the Eagles. His 2017 base salary was $1,000,000 and I’m sure you’ve read in the news by now that Long donated his entire regular season salary to charity. Each week, donating his paycheck to a different charity.
Long kept his postseason earnings. It’s actually expensive AF to fly your family and extended family all over the country and put them up in nice hotels to watch you play in the playoffs and Super Bowl so this is totally understandable. Not that he needed to donate any more money after giving $1 million to charity in 2017.
As a show of appreciation towards his fellow teammates, Chris Long gave every player on the Eagles a bottle of Crown Royal XR which retails for $130/bottle. There are 53 players on the roster and a shit ton more people on the practice squad and working in the facilities so that’s A TON of $$$$$ that Chris Long spent on his Philly squad.
“We came together on Sunday and finished out the season on the highest note possible,” said Chris Long. “To commemorate this big win, me and my friends at Crown Royal are giving each of my teammates a bottle of Crown Royal XR in a custom embroidered bag.”
The ornate bottles came with blue velvet bags each embroidered to commemorate the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2017 Super Bowl Championship, the first in franchise history. Long teamed up with Crown Royal for this, piggybacking off their existing charitable relationship.
Crown Royal has donated an astounding $100,000 to Waterboys, one of the noble charity organizations housed within the Chris Long Foundation umbrella. Waterboys builds water wells for East African communities and without these wells, the communities wouldn’t be able to have drinking water. Throughout the 2017 NFL Season, Waterboys + Crown Royal teamed up to build two new wells for these communities.
