You Can Cash a Check and Meet an Eagles Hall of Famer in Bensalem
Beginning at noon on Tuesday, M&T Bank’s Bensalem branch is holding an autograph session featuring former Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter (three stints in midnight green!) while WIP’s Jon Marks hosts some live on-site sports talk.
Marks will be discussing all things NFL Draft and presumably a little bit about managing your portfolio or whatever the corporate sponsors have mandated.

Don’t miss your chance to pick up some deposit slips and meet the man who was ejected prior to the 2005 season opener for fighting Atlanta Falcons cornerback Kevin Mathis.
The event runs until 2 p.m. and the first 250 people will receive mini-footballs to have “the Axe Man” sign.
While Trotter became a household name during the Andy Reid era, he actually predated Big Red in Philly by one year, first playing for the Birds from 1998 to 2001. Trot came back just in time for the team’s run to the Super Bowl in 2004 and stayed through 2006 before returning once again in 2009 following Stewart Bradley’s ACL injury (ah, what could’ve been). Trotter was inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame in 2016.
Also worth noting: M&T Bank owns the naming rights to the Baltimore Ravens’ stadium, which served as the home field for Shane Falco and the rest of The Replacements.
