It is Jalen Hurts’ season for the Philadelphia Eagles and all eyes are on him.

He performed well through organized team activities (OTAs), but the third-year quarterback showed out Wednesday as Philadelphia opened training camp. Hurts looks stronger and his accuracy has gotten better. Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni entered the building with a Hurts t-shirt on, showing love to his signal-caller. A.J. Brown said practice was ‘lit,’ and he is excited about what Hurts can do in the fall. Brown wore a “Hurts SZN” at practice to let everyone know it is Jalen’s time to dominate.

According to Philadelphia beat reporters, Hurts tossed several touchdowns. He connected with Brown, DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Quez Watkins, and Kenneth Gainwell for scores. Hurts also threw an interception, but the ball got tipped on the play.

Excitement is in the air for the Eagles as they feel Hurts is the quarterback for them. He’s bonded the community off the field and earned everyone’s trust. Hurts took Philadelphia to the playoffs in 2021 and totaled 26 touchdowns.
