Philadelphia Eagles

Jean-Gilles was drafted in the fourth round with the 99th overall pick by the Philadelphia Eagles. Many people did expect him to go higher because of his athleticism and playing ability, but his inability to control his weight might have played into that decision. He and offensive tackle Winston Justice, who was drafted in the second round also by the Eagles, were supposed to have helped with the rebuilding process of the offensive line. On July 10, 2006, Jean-Gilles signed a four-year contract with the Eagles.

On September 23, 2007, Jean-Gilles made his regular season debut for the Eagles, subbing in for an injured Shawn Andrews.

Jean-Gilles' 2008 season was cut short on Thanksgiving night against the Arizona Cardinals when he fractured his ankle and was placed on injured reserve.

After a knee injury to starting center Jamaal Jackson in week 16 against the Denver Broncos, starting right guard Nick Cole shifted over to center, while Jean-Gilles came in at right guard for the rest of the game.[1] With Jackson out for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), Jean-Gilles will continue to start at right guard for the rest of the year.[2]

Personal

Jean-Gilles' parents immigrated to the United States from Haiti in the mid-1980s. He is married to his wife, Maggie, who started a school in Haiti in September 2008. The school was destroyed after the catastrophic earthquake in January 2010.[3]
