Jalen Hurts:

    Jalen Hurts had his struggles, but there’s proof not everything was his fault with the Philadelphia Eagles passing game. Jalen Hurts, you’re up. That also means that Philadelphia won’t be able to add receivers in free agency unless they trim even more lucrative deals this offseason. Long story short, Philadelphia is a knock-out punch away from being in worse shape than before the Wentz deal. Here’s hoping Sirianni’s offense can cater to Jalen Reagor and JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Adding another receiver or cornerback will be essential in the draft, but let’s pump the brakes before giving up on Hurts. Next: Former Eagles wideout reveals where it all went wrong for Carson Wentz
    Getty Philadelphia Eagles receivers Travis Fulgham and Jalen Reagor are predicting big things for the offense in 2021. Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Jalen Reagor and Travis Fulgham combined for 935 receiving yards in 2020. They expect those catch numbers to increase dramatically with Jalen Hurts under center. And Philly fans need to stop stressing out. The two players seem overly confident in the direction that new coach Nick Sirianni is leading the offense. On Friday, Fulgham took to Twitter to calm the green masses by instructing them not to worry about the Eagles’ offense. Reagor immediately chimed in with an emphatic “at all.” AT ALL. https://t.co/A17veVUz5g — Reag (@jalenreagor) February 26, 2021 And why shouldn’t they be mildly bragging in February? Both players should have big roles in 2021 even if the Eagles take a wide receiver in the first round. Fulgham was arguably the top...
    Getty DeVonta Smith during the Alabama win vs. Ohio State. There appears to be a raging debate in Philadelphia about whether Jalen Hurts is the future face of the Eagles’ franchise. Did the dual-threat quarterback show enough in a very limited tryout to earn the job? Everyone has an opinion on Hurts, including ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. who revealed his latest mock draft on Tuesday’s “First Draft” podcast. He started the conversation by trying to make sense of the Carson Wentz trade — “I don’t understand it,” Kiper mused — before turning his attention to this year’s draft. Kiper isn’t sold on Hurts, but he finds it impossible for the Eagles to pass on an elite receiver at pick number six. wasn’t expecting to see DeVonta Smith have the same calves as Justin Jefferson (Chase built like a RB) pic.twitter.com/G1V77XfE9R — Nate Tice (@Nate_Tice) February 22, 2021...

Hurts already seems to be assuming the mantle of the Eagles’ leader, as NBC Sports reports that the second-year quarterback plans to gather several of Philadelphia’s top receivers for a passing camp in Texas sometime this offseason. If some veteran players believed Hurts had more upside than Wentz, and Hurts continues to build rapport with his offensive weapons this offseason, it could earn him plenty of equity...
    Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys. (Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) If the Eagles are not entirely sold on Jalen Hurts, they have options to pursue at quarterback this offseason and beyond.With the Philadelphia Eagles trading Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, that leaves second-year pro Jalen Hurts as the presumptive Week 1 starting quarterback in the City of Brotherly Love. While Hurts showed flashes in a handful of starts at the end of the regular season, Philadelphia has a new coaching staff with former Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni coming over. Though he could be the one to develop Hurts in the next few years of his rookie contract, he may also prefer the Eagles to look elsewhere for possibly a better option under center before this fall.3 better quarterback options for Eagles over Jalen Hurts 3 Dak Prescott QB Dallas Cowboys This sounds like blasphemy, probably because it is, but hear...
    Getty Eagles rookie QB Jalen Hurts takes the field for his first NFL start. There seems to be confusion over Jalen Hurts’ spot on the Philadelphia Eagles depth chart. Is he entrenched as the new starter with Carson Wentz gone? Or will the team add a veteran quarterback or draft one in April? Let’s leave that debate for another day. On Saturday, quarterback whisperer Quincy Avery — President at Quarterback Takeover — posted a video of Hurts and Steelers quarterback Josh Dobbs working out together and chucking the pigskin around.

    Just because the Eagles have traded away Carson Wentz, it doesn’t mean that Jalen Hurts is guaranteed to be the starter in Philadelphia.  With the news dropping on Thursday morning that the Philadelphia Eagles had traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Colts, many fans out there might be expecting Jalen Hurts to be the clear starter moving forward for the NFC East team. However, let’s hold the phone on those discussions.

The Philadelphia Eagles intend to bring in competition at the quarterback position, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. The starting job might be up for grabs. This isn’t the first time the possibility of an open competition at Eagles training camp has been mentioned. However, it bears a second glance considering the two plugged-in reporters chose to include it in their story announcing the Carson Wentz trade.

    Trading disgruntled star quarterback Carson Wentz may end one Eagles quarterback controversy — and start another. Philadelphia isn’t committed to handing over the starting job to Jalen Hurts, as previously believed, and could look to trade for a quarterback or draft another in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “I don’t think they’re just set at the quarterback position,” Schefter said Wednesday on “The John Kincade Show” on 97.5 The Fanatic. The Eagles have been trying to find a trade partner for Wentz — and his albatross of a $128 million contract — for weeks, and it’s expected either the Colts or Bears will acquire the former MVP candidate. The 28-year-old Wentz reportedly requested a trade after he was benched for poor play in December.

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will gather players for an offseason workout instead of Carson Wentz.  When the Philadelphia Eagles drafted Jalen Hurts last spring, he immediately made it clear he was ready to play beyond his years and showed plenty of maturity. Late in the season, Philadelphia ended up benching Carson Wentz, giving Hurts his time to shine.

    Getty Eagles QB Jalen Hurts appears to be taking on a bigger leadership role in Philadelphia as Carson Wentz trade rumors swirl. The Carson Wentz trade rumors won’t go away, but business in the NFL must go on. So Jalen Hurts has invited a group of young wide receivers to work out with him in Texas, per NBC10’s John Clark. The report didn’t go into great details (or any detail) about who was invited and when it would happen. Still, the fact that Hurts has taken on a bigger leadership role is telling, especially when considering the second-year quarterback hasn’t yet been named the starter for 2021. Wentz remains on the roster and — barring a blockbuster trade — could be competing with Hurts for the job at training camp. “Obviously I love winning more than anything,” Hurts said on Jan. 4. “I’ve been so invested in...

    Getty Carson Wentz could be available on the trade market this offseason. The great American poet Emily Dickinson once penned the beautiful line of “saying nothing sometimes says the most.” For Carson Wentz, his silence has been deafening over the past two months as multiple reports of his unhappiness continue to leak out.

It was an honest answer to an innocent question until it got interpreted a million different ways from Mayfair to Millville.

The simple query: who will be the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback in 2021? “That’s a great question; that’s a great question,” Hurts told CBS Sports HQ. “I’ll tell you that I’m putting the work in on my end, trying to build those relationships with my guys.

    Getty Eagles quarterbacks Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld and Jalen Hurts get some work in at practice. It’s a mess. That was the succinct way that ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio summed up the quarterback situation for the Philadelphia Eagles. They are caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to stacking their deck of cards with Carson Wentz — and not overplaying their hand in a trade. That is assuming they even have a hand to play. Many have been pointing to the recently completed Lions-Rams trade for inspiration, the one that packaged Jared Goff and a king’s ransom of draft picks for Matthew Stafford. If that kind of scenario played itself out in Philly, they would have to put Eagles GM Howie Roseman in the witness protection program. No, the more likely outcome is Wentz fights for the job with Jalen Hurts during an open competition...
    Getty Eagles QB Carson Wentz was benched for rookie Jalen Hurts against the Green Bay Packers. Nick Sirianni continues to be guarded with his words about the quarterback position in Philadelphia. It seems likely that a competition between Carson Wentz and Jalen Hurts will ensure at Eagles training camp. That would be the easiest way to determine the best man for the job. Wentz and Hurts — hard feelings aside, of course — could go throw-for-throw and rep-for-rep in a take-no-prisoners position battle.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Nick Sirianni era has officially begun. After much anticipation, the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles addressed the media for the first time on Friday. With owner Jeffrey Lurie virtually by his side, Siranni fielded questions about what he will be bringing to a team that went 4-11-1 this past season. To begin his remarks, Sirianni stressed building connections among the entire organization. And when the questions began, he had to address the quarterback position. “We have two quarterbacks that are top-notch quarterbacks and some teams don’t have any,” he said. Sirianni went on to mention that he has spoken to both Carson Wentz and Jalen Hurts and expressed his excitement, but did not tip his hand on who may be starting under center this upcoming year. When asked about the QBs, Sirianni says theyre evaluating each position. Not giving an inch there. — Pat...

    Did Doug Pederson prefer Jalen Hurts to start over Carson Wentz? The Philadelphia Eagles made a surprising move when they fired head coach Doug Pederson just three years after he led the team to a Super Bowl title.

    Just one day after reports indicated there was a sideline confrontation between Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson and several players over his decision to pull Jalen Hurts in a critical game against Washington over the weekend, center Jason Kelce took to social media to set the record straight.  Sources told The Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday that two defensive players had to be held back after Pederson shockingly pulled Hurts for third-stringer Nate Sudfeld in the fourth quarter when the Eagles were only trailing by three.

Philadelphia center Jason Kelce addressed the drama Wednesday morning in a lengthy Instagram post, saying he wanted to “clarify and more accurately depict what happened” during Sunday’s game between the Eagles and the Washington Football Team. Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson replaced starting quarterback Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter of that contest with little-used backup Nate Sudfeld, and that transition went about as well as expected. Sudfeld finished 5-of-12 for 32 yards with two turnovers, leading to accusations of tanking because Philly only trailed by three points when Sudfeld took the field.

Center Jason Kelce refuted a recent report in the Philadelphia Inquirer that claimed players were angry, and two defensive players had to be held back from approaching head coach Doug Pederson on the sideline after he made one of the most controversial coaching decisions of the season: benching Hurts and inserting third-string backup Nate Sudfeld when the Eagles were trailing by just three points.

With the Eagles trailing 17-14 and presented with a valuable moment for arguably the most important player heading into the franchise’s offseason, Hurts sat on the bench and nursed an expression fitting his surname.

    Getty Eagles QB Carson Wentz was benched for rookie Jalen Hurts against the Green Bay Packers. The quarterback controversy in Philadelphia was started the minute the franchise drafted Jalen Hurts in the second round. The crisis hit a deafening crescendo yesterday following rumored trade requests and a controversial loss. Now the Eagles will presumably head into the 2021 campaign with Hurts battling for the starting job in training camp against Carson Wentz. That is, assuming the franchise doesn’t send Wentz packing prior to what should be a spirited summer competition. Wentz “politely” declined to speak to Philly reporters on Monday but Hurts made time for a Zoom call. He offered his thoughts on the impending offseason. “I’m a competitor,” Hurts said. “I control what I can control and I’ll put my best foot forward in any situation I’m in, and be the best quarterback I can.” Jalen Hurts...
    The only group of people rooting for the Eagles harder than Eagles fans was the New York Giants. The longtime division rivals became strange bedfellows because a Philadelphia win would have clinched a playoff berth for New York. However, Philadelphia lost, and the Giants are now mad about it. Though the Giants aren’t merely mad that Philly lost, they’re mad because they believe the Eagles lost on purpose. The controversy centers around Eagles coach Doug Pederson’s decision to pull starting quarterback Jalen Hurts and replace him with Nate Sudfeld. The game had been competitive up to the point that Hurts got pulled. After he was pulled, it was less competitive. The move brought forth a flurry of reaction from Giants players.

If the Eagles won, then the Giants would have made it in as NFC East champions.  But in the fourth quarter of a three-point game, the Eagles pulled their rookie sensation in favor of their third-string quarterback.

    Getty Eagles rookie QB Jalen Hurts vowed to come back "on a mission" in 2021. In one of the most bizarre season finales in NFL history, Jalen Hurts calmly strutted to the post-game podium and took the high road. The rookie quarterback was benched in the fourth quarter of a tight game but didn’t complain. Not once. The 22-year-old had been informed during the week that backup Nate Sudfeld would get an opportunity to play if the proper situation presented itself. Well, down a field goal with the playoffs out of reach, the Eagles head coach pulled Hurts for the former sixth-round pick. Hurts understood Doug Pederson’s plan. “Nate’s worked really hard all year, I think he’s a great player and coach wanted to give him an opportunity at some point in the game and he was given an opportunity,” Hurts said after the game. “Like I said,...
    Getty Eagles QB Nate Sudfeld went in for Jalen Hurts and helped Washington take the NFC East. The Philadelphia Eagles preached a “no-hat rule” all week and then handed out free championship apparel. The Washington Football Team walked out of Lincoln Financial Field with a 20-14 victory on Sunday night and the NFC East crown. They intentionally tanked to earn a higher draft pick. Jalen Hurts was benched in the fourth quarter of a 17-14 contest for backup Nate Sudfeld. Remember, Carson Wentz was a healthy scratch after rumors of him demanding a trade out of Philly started swirling earlier in the day. Hurts was by no means superb — 7-of-20 for 72 yards, zero touchdowns, one interception — but he did have two rushing scores and kept it competitive. The rookie looked miffed, perhaps a touch pissed off, when cameras panned to him on the sideline. Sudfeld came...
    The Eagles didn’t land the angry Giants an unlikely playoff berth. Philadelphia failed to deliver the knockout of the Washington Football Team the Giants needed to steal the NFC East title at 6-10, with coach Doug Pederson pulling rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter for little-used third stringer Nate Sudfeld in a season-ending 20-14 loss Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field. “Why on gods green earth is Jalen Hurts not in the game,” Giants receiver Darius Slayton tweeted after Hurts was pulled, before adding a few minutes later, “This is sickening. “You play the game to win point blank period. JJ Watt said it best the other day outside of how it [affects] us.

    Getty Russell Wilson has heard all the critics during the Seahawks skid. Jalen Hurts has often talked about Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson being his two favorite quarterbacks, guys he looked up to as a youngster before they became his peers. So it was only fitting that Ron Rivera said the Philadelphia Eagles rookie reminds him of one of them. The Washington Football Team head coach (say that three times fast) was asked for his thoughts on Hurts during a conference call on Wednesday and invoked Wilson’s name. Aside from the two guys being dual-threat playmakers with their legs and arm, they also share common measurables and similar paths to the NFL. Remember, Wilson was a three-year starter at North Carolina before transferring to Wisconsin. Hurts went from Alabama to Oklahoma. “Honestly, he does remind me of Russell Wilson,” Rivera told Philly reporters on Wednesday. “He’s a very...
    Getty Eagles center Jason Kelce sees an incredibly motivated Carson Wentz. The future for Carson Wentz in Philadelphia is hazier than the skies over the Art Museum after a fireworks display on the Fourth of July. And there doesn’t appear to be a grand finale anytime soon. The Philadelphia Eagles are still experimenting with rookie Jalen Hurts at quarterback with one game remaining in this off-kilter year. Wentz has been sitting on the bench for three straight weeks, including 13.5 quarters. There is no clear-cut answer as to what the future holds, not enough of a body of work from Hurts to draw a franchise-changing conclusion. But that hasn’t stopped the trade speculation. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Indianapolis Colts remain in the mix as a prime destination for Wentz. He polled several NFL high-ranking executives and mentioned both Wentz and Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions...
    Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are having a season to remember in 2020. Under coach Matt LaFleur, the Packers are now on a 12-3 record heading into Week 17 of the season. Rodgers is undoubtedly having one of the best seasons of his longstanding NFL career in 2020. However, another Packers player who has impressed this year is talented wide receiver, Davante Adams. The 28-year old has been terrific this year. He has been Rodgers’ trusted deputy in the Packers offense. Together, the pair have transformed the Wisconsin-based franchise into potential Super Bowl contenders.

    Getty Eagles center Jason Kelce attempted to fire up his teammates with an emotional speech. The Philadelphia Eagles committed 12 total penalties for 115 yards in Week 16, including six false starts from their makeshift offensive line. Head coach Doug Pederson pinned them on Jalen Hurts’ cadence but a former three-time Pro Bowl left tackle had a sightly different take after breaking down the tape. Tra Thomas, who spent 11 years in midnight green, reviewed the game film on Monday and blamed All-Pro center Jason Kelce for miscommunications on the pre-snap snafus. One false start was clearly on tight end Zach Ertz for moving early and another one was squarely on right guard Isaac Seumalo. But Thomas pointed out that the other four penalties were all on Kelce who snapped the football too late. Pederson talked about Hurts’ teammates getting used to the rookie’s voice while mentioning crowd...
    Getty Eagles coach Doug Pederson talks over a play with QB Jalen Hurts while backup Carson Wentz listens in. No surprises here: Jalen Hurts will close out the season as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. The dual-threat rookie will make his third straight start in a meaningless game against the Washington Football Team. He has gone 1-2 with a 85.7 passer rating since taking over for Carson Wentz. Well, meaningless for one team as Washington can clinch the NFC East with a victory. Ron Rivera’s squad will also be making a quarterback switch after releasing former first-round pick Dwayne Haskins on Monday.

    The referees gave the Dallas Cowboys a belated Christmas gift at the expense of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. The Week 16 game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles was a must-win for both teams. With a win, they’d enter the final week of the season with a chance to clinch the NFC East crown. Unfortunately for the Eagles, who were already losing at the time, they were robbed by the officials inside Jerry World. Shocking, we know. During the fourth quarter, Eagles rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts scrambled past the line of scrimmage but appeared to have fumbled the ball once tackled by Cowboys edge rushers DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory.

    Getty Trevon Diggs Carson Wentz was still the starting quarterback the last time Trevon Diggs matched wits with the Philadelphia Eagles some eight weeks ago. The rookie cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys picked him off twice in that game. But a lot has changed since the Eagles’ 23-9 win on Nov. 1. Remember, it was reportedly the beginning of owner Jeffrey Lurie’s “frustration” with the offense and head coach Doug Pederson. Now the team has turned the keys over to second-round pick Jalen Hurts who was college teammates with Diggs at Alabama from 2016-18. Diggs talked about facing Hurts earlier this week, calling the quarterback his “good friend” and drooling over the prospect of intercepting the new starter in Philly. He even admitted that Hurts provides a bigger challenge than Wentz due to his ability to extend plays with his feet. “I know a lot about Jalen,” Diggs...

    Getty Eagles receivers Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson only played one season together as teammates in Philadelphia. DeSean Jackson has been back practicing with the Philadelphia Eagles this week and there is a good chance he sees the field again this year. The team has 21 days to add the 34-year-old speedster to the active roster. Jackson hasn’t played since Oct. 22 when he suffered a high-ankle sprain on a borderline dirty hit against the New York Giants.

But the veteran receiver remained motivated to come back and he’s getting close to realizing that dream. “He’s getting close. We activated it [the 21-day practice window] for that reason. We feel like he is close,” head coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Thursday. “He was able to get some snaps in yesterday with the offense....
    Getty The Denver Broncos are making a change at quarterback. The smart money has Carson Wentz landing his next job with the Indianapolis Colts in 2021. That’s assuming the Philadelphia Eagles actually want to trade their benched quarterback in the offseason. But a new contender has emerged as a possible trading partner and the franchise makes a ton of sense. According to Pro Football Focus, the Denver Broncos might be interested in luring Wentz out west where he’d only be about 10 hours from his hometown of Bismarck, North Dakota. Broncos GM John Elway has been unable to find a franchise signal-caller since Peyton Manning retired in 2015 and second-year man Drew Lock is failing his audition miserably right now.

(RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) His response?

    Getty Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will make his third NFL start this week against the Dallas Cowboys. Jalen Hurts might have a book deal by the end of his first NFL season — that is, if there isn’t already one in the works. The rookie quarterback has a way with words, especially when it comes to dropping meaningful sayings and analogies. Here’s a new one: stay away from the rat poison. Hurts will make his third straight professional start in Week 16 in another must-win game for the Philadelphia Eagles. One week after racking up 401 total yards (338 throwing, 63 rushing), the beyond mature 22-year-old has stayed away from his press clippings. Not to mention the poisonous talk of jealousy from Carson Wentz and a possible fractured locker room. First off, there is no rift between the two quarterbacks — and, secondly, Hurts always ignores the...
    Getty Philadelphia Eagles rookie receiver Quez Watkins threw up the peace sign after scoring his first touchdown. It’s been a long time coming for Quez Watkins. The rookie sixth-rounder has been patiently “waiting his turn” and finally got his number called last week. He promptly turned it into six points on a 32-yard touchdown scamper on 3rd-and-20. Peace out. Watkins threw up the peace sign with two fingers as he crossed the goal line, but it wasn’t a sign of disrespect to any of the Arizona Cardinals defenders trailing him. No, it was a shout out to teammate Greg Ward who had followed him down the field and helped block. The kid from Southern Miss looked electric on the catch, taking a short touch pass from Jalen Hurts and putting a nifty spin move on linebacker Markus Golden. From there, it was a foot race and Watkins —...
    With the championship game here for most fantasy football owners, they will be facing their most difficult start ’em, sit ’em decisions of the year. With several notable players dealing with injuries that could knock them out of action (or have already in the cases of Cam Akers, Raheem Mostert, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire), some owners will be scrambling to find sleepers to plug into the flex spot in their lineups. Even if injuries aren’t an issue, owners often have a rotating flex option, and this is the week to trust matchup-based options to give your championship lineup a high ceiling. For Week 16, Le’Veon Bell, Leonard Fournette, Jalen Hurts, John Brown, and Tyler Eifert are some of the best under-the-radar options who fantasy owners can rely on to emerge as their league’s champion.

    Next1 of 6Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse Fantasy football may have a new star in Jalen Hurts. With the fantasy football season entering championship week in the vast majority of leagues, the time for wholesale changes at the quarterback position has long since passed. However, as the focus shifts away from Week 15, we can reflect on the stunning performance of a young quarterback who is likely to become an extremely valuable commodity in fantasy circles after he followed up an extremely intriguing first effort with a performance that should have set pulses racing in large parts of Pennsylvania. While spectacular, it was a display that is unlikely to change anything for fantasy managers focusing on championship matchups. For those in dynasty leagues, though, there may be something of a scramble to see if the rookie second-round pick is available on the waiver wire and, if not,...
    Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber fired shots at Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz on Monday after reports came out that said Wentz was unhappy with being benched in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts. "Carson Wentz is being perhaps the worst teammate you could possibly be -- ever," Barber said during the "Tiki & Tierney" show. "Here’s the problem: there is a narrative around Carson Wentz that as good as he is or potentially could be, he’s just never been able to be the man. It puts the Eagles in an utterly impossible position." CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM On Monday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson announced that Hurts will once again start against the Dallas Cowboys in their Week 16 matchup. It will be Hurts’ third-straight game starting under center for Philadelphia. "If they make this change and Carson Wentz, who got a $128...
    Getty Former Eagles QB Michael Vick. If ever there was an expert on quarterback controversies in Philadelphia, it would be Michael Vick. The former Pro Bowl quarterback was thrown into a loaded Eagles quarterbacks room featuring Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb in 2009 — and the rumors immediately swirled about when Vick would take over as the starter. It was actually a pretty similar situation to how the Jalen Hurts’ experiment started this year. Vick, like Hurts, was used as a gadget-play specialist and “wildcat” weapon for then-coach Andy Reid. He completed six passes for 86 yards and one touchdown while rushing 24 times for 95 yards and two scores in 12 games upon his release from prison and a two-game suspension for running a dogfighting ring. Vick eventually took over as the starter in Philly after McNabb was sent packing to Washington in 2010. (For the record,...

(It’s) just amazing what he’s doing as a rookie, just stepping right in. You hear he’s got a ton of respect on the team, (that) he’s a hard worker. To some degree, he reminds you, I’m not going to go as far as to say all the details of (his skillset).

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts has invigorated the Philadelphia Eagles. The rookie quarterback’s impressive performance in a 33-26 loss at Arizona on Sunday earned him a third straight start and pushed the organization closer to a difficult decision in the offseason. Hurts relied on his legs to help the Eagles upset the New Orleans Saints in his first career start. He showed off his passing skills against the Cardinals, throwing for 338 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for 63 and a score. But the Eagles (4-9-1) still fell short and lost an opportunity to take control of their playoff hopes in the pitiful NFC East. Hurts took a safety for intentional grounding in the end zone in the first quarter and was sacked six times, including consecutive plays after the Eagles had a first down at the Arizona 11 with three minutes remaining. He’ll be under center instead...

    If Jerry Jones had bis way, Jalen Hurts would be on the Dallas Cowboys. The Philadelphia Eagles raised plenty of eyebrows when they selected Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, but that selection proved to be quite a prudent one, as Hurts has been lighting up the box score after taking the job over from Carson Wentz. Ahead of Hurts’ first introduction to the bloodbath that is the Eagles’ rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones claims that he originally wanted Hurts to what the star on the side of his helmet. During an interview with 105.3 The Fan, Jones claims that the Cowboys had an interest in drafting Hurts, who grew up as a Cowboys fan in Texas, but the Eagles foiled their plan when they picked him earlier than Dallas expected.Jalen Hurts has looked the part early in his...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts has earned another start following an impressive performance in Philadelphia’s 33-26 loss at Arizona. In a not-so-shocking announcement, head coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Hurts will be behind center for the third straight game when the Eagles (4-9-1) visit Dallas (5-9) on Sunday. “Obviously, I’m going to continue to have Jalen start this week. I’m focused on only this week,” Pederson said. Hurts replaced Carson Wentz in the second half of a loss at Green Bay on Dec. 6. ESPN reports Wentz will want to leave Philadelphia if Hurts remains starting quarterback. The Eagles signed Wentz to a four-year, $127 million extension last offseason, with $107 million guaranteed. Hurts threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 63 and a score against the Cardinals, helping the Eagles rally from a 16-0 deficit to tie it 26-26 late in the third...
