Dante Olson is headed back to the City of Brotherly Love.

The former Montana Grizzly has reportedly been called back to the Philadelphia Eagles organization for a visit and workout to help fill the need created by recent injuries.

Olson posted on his Instagram account that he "can't wait to be back with my team."

"Be there soon Philly," Olson's post read, quoting Sylvester Stallone from the Rocky movies. "'It's not how hard you hit, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward -- that's how winning is done.'"

Olson was picked up by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in April after a standout career at Montana. He was waived in August just before the season started.

The 2019 Buck Buchanan winner finished his career as Montana's all-time leader with 397 career tackles. The Medford, Oregon, native set a new Big Sky Conference record in 2019 with 179.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94WIP, a sports talk radio station in Philadelphia, Olson is expected to be brought back to the Eagles' practice squad but must clear COVID-19 protocols before officially joining the team. Olson has been residing in Oregon.
