Defensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles, Linval Clement Joseph, was born in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. He played college football at East Carolina after attending attended Santa Fe High School in Alachua, Florida. He was drafted by the New York Giants in the second round, 46th overall of the 2010 NFL Draft. Joseph, 34, has also played for the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers.

On March 30, 2020, Joseph signed a two-year, $17 million contract with the Los Angeles Chargers. But on November 16, 2022, Joseph agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.  During the first quarter of the 2022 season NFC Championship Game, Joseph recovered a key fumble forced by linebacker Haason Reddick, a play which led to significant injury of the arm of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy.

2: Robert Quinn

Robert Quinn, 32, a defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League, has roots in Puerto Rico. Quinn’s mother is from Puerto Rico and his sister is Olympic gold medalist and Puerto Rican hurdler Jasmine Camacho-Quinn.

Quinn, who was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a fourth round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft on October 26, 2022, was only activated on January 7, 2023. He is an alumnus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he played for the North Carolina Tar Heels football team.
