Bryce Harper won over many hearts in Philadelphia the moment he signed with the Phillies. Now, his popularity in the City of Brotherly Love is only going to climb even higher.

Talking with standout Eagles lineman Lane Johnson, Harper joked that he'll sign on to play for Doug Pederson and Co. if there's no MLB this summer/fall.

Get the kid from Las Vegas a uniform! While Harper was clearly joking here, the thought of him suiting up for the Eagles sure is fun. Hey, Philly could use some help for Carson Wentz at receiver. Bryce checks in at 6-3, 220 pounds. He's got outside WR written all over him.

With the MLB 2020 campaign in limbo, Phillies fans are surely hoping something gets done ASAP so they can watch Harper send balls to the moon like normal, though.

That swing is just a thing of beauty. Keep practicing in the batting cage, Mr. Harper. As cool as it would be to see you in pads, we like seeing you blasting dingers a lot more.
