A member of a mainline Philadelphia family and captain and quarterback of Penn in 1919, De Benneville "Bert" Bell took the pro football plunge in 1933 by acquiring, with co-owner Lud Wray, a Philadelphia franchise to replace the Frankford Yellowjackets (formed in 1924, won a League Championship in 1926, folded in 1931). The franchise agreement required Bell's team to pay off a percentage of the debts left by the Yellowjackets. Joining the league at the same time was Art Rooney with a franchise in Pittsburgh. Bell and Rooney became close friends. Bell named the team "Eagles" after the blue eagle symbol of the National Recovery Administration that had been created in 1933 as part of Franlin Roosevelt's "New Deal" to lift America out of the Depression. The NRA was soon declared unconstitutional and Bell must have wished that his Eagles franchise could also be similarly eradicated. Almost totally unsuccessful both on the field and at the gate1 the Eagles were put up for auction in their third year. But Bell was the only bidder.and he obtained sole rights to the team for $4,500. He then took on the coaching chores to add to the general manager, ticket manager and press agent jobs he already held. Even during these rough early years, Bell made his first lasting contribution to the National Football League by proposing the annual college draft as the only way the league could create continuing competitive equality. The revolutionary new plan was adopted in time for the 1936 draft. Ironically, the team that benefitted least from Bell's idea was the Eagles. Bell was unable to sign a single one of his drafted players in that first year.
