Philadelphia Eagles Pick Meek Mill Song For Super Bowl

The Philadelphia Eagles will enter Sunday's Super Bowl Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares."

Via NFL:

The Eagles' unofficial anthem this season has been "Dreams and Nightmares" by rapper and Philly native Meek Mill. It was playing as practically the entire team danced in a meeting room the day before the NFC Championship Game, again on the field pregame and one more time after they beat the Vikings.

Defensive end Brandon Graham said the team has decided that will be the song they'll come out to this Sunday when they're introduced as a team.

"If you're going to go with a Philly song," Graham said, "that's the one you're going with."

Mill is currently serving a sentence of two to four years for a parole violation stemming from two arrests. It was a controversial sentencing, as prosecutors recommended no jail time.

"Meek, you know, he's locked up right now," Eagles rookie defensive end Derek Barnett said, "so we have to hold the city down for him."

Mill released a statement last week saying it "really lifted my spirit to hear the team rallying around my songs." He'll surely get another lift to find out the team will use "Dreams and Nightmares" on the NFL's biggest stage on Sunday.

"It just gets us going," Barnett said. "It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice."
