Get ready to tell some tall tales, because this week’s Twitch Prime Legend is Philadelphia Eagles WR Harold Carmichael, with an 83 OVR!
At 6 foot 8 inches, Carmichael is the tallest wide receiver in the history of the NFL. He was basically Shaquille O’Neal in football pads, catching alley-oop passes and dunking on DB’s in the end zone. From ’71-’83 he had 590 receptions, 8,985 yards, and 79 TD’s. He was a 4x Pro Bowler, named to the NFL 1970s All Decade team, and is an Eagles Hall of Fame inductee. Can you imagine trying to guard him as a 5’10 corner? You’d get altitude sickness trying to jump that high.
After retirement, Carmichael was named the director of player and community relations for the Eagles, and was a Fan Engagement Liaison from 2014–2015. Which was awesome for fans, as long as they didn’t get stuck sitting behind him at games.
