Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts are Southeastern Conference Champions, College Football Playoff National Champions, and the Crimson Tide played a role in pushing both to the pros. Both are under a microscope this season as the Dolphins and Eagles want to make sure they made the right decision in the 2020 NFL Draft. Before both teams face off in the preseason, Miami and Philadelphia will have joint practices. The Eagles’ social media page (Twitter) put the news out Tuesday afternoon.

Tagovailoa and Hurts are the main attraction, but several Alabama alums will be on the field. DeVonta Smith, Landon Dickerson, and Josh Jobe will represent the Eagles. Jaylen Waddle and Raekwon Davis will represent the Dolphins.

Tagovailoa and Hurts are prepared to make big jumps in year three as quarterbacks.
