Philadelphia Eagles safety Rodney McLeod and several of his teammates rode on a double-decker bus and encouraged people to vote as they traveled throughout the city on Tuesday.

Using megaphones to address crowds along several routes, McLeod and his teammates emphasized the importance of voting and reminded everyone to wear masks to protect themselves from COVID-19.

“It has been amazing to see how excited and prideful everyone is about voting,” McLeod said. “When they see the bus and give us a thumbs-up that they voted, we are confident that change is going to come.”

Defensive backs Darius Slay, Jalen Mills, Avonte Maddox, Grayland Arnold and Elijah Riley, wide receiver Greg Ward, tight end Dallas Goedert, tackle Jordan Mailata and backup quarterback Jalen Hurts joined McLeod on the bus.

McLeod and his wife, Erika, developed a “My Voice My Vote” initiative in partnership with their Change Our Future Foundation to support and encourage civic engagement and voting in the city. They provided free shuttle service to polling locations in North Philadelphia and provided meals to volunteer poll workers.

City officials joined the McLeods and the Eagles players on the bus and a DJ turned the ride into a party atmosphere.  Watch the video and read the article on si.com

There were times, Rodney McLeod admits now, when he wasn’t sure “I had it in me” to recover from a torn ACL suffered in December 2020 in time to play during the 2021 Eagles season. The long hours of rehab that translated to mini-steps of recovery seemed like such a mountain to climb for McLeod, who had suffered the same injury in 2018 and also had come back from a rotator cuff injury a season later.
