Jalen Hurts saw the confidence the Philadelphia Eagles have in him during the NFL Draft, and he is loving it.
Philadelphia got star receiver A.J. Brown in a trade from the Tennessee Titans.
Hurts has two elite playmakers in Brown and DeVonta Smith to get the ball to. Brown enters his fourth season in the National Football League in the fall. As a former Ole Miss standout, he totaled back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020 for the Titans. The 6-foot-1, 226-pounder recorded 869 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 63 receptions in 2021. Brown is excited to work with his new quarterback. He and Hurts laughed together uncontrollably via TikTok after the trade announcement.
