Philadelphia Eagles Have Made a Decision On Jalen Hurts For Next Season

Are the Eagles still in the Jalen Hurts business?

Only a few days after the season ended being blown out in Tampa, Eagles GM Howie Roseman and Head Coach Nick Sirianni both said they saw enough from Hurts in 2021 to feel comfortable moving forward with him as the Eagles’ quarterback.

No offseason drama in Philly, the decision has been made already.

“Jalen knows where he stands with us,” Sirianni said. “He knows he’s our quarterback.

“How do you know where you stand with a coaching staff? You communicate, and you talk over and over and over and over again. So Jalen knows where he stands with us. I thought he did a great job of getting better throughout the year.

“There’s no secrets there. He knows he’s our guy.”

By making this statement on Hurts, the Eagles have all but eliminate an entire offseason of speculation, rumors and reports.

Maybe not eliminate but at least keep things quiet for now.

“We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really 1st-year starter, 2nd-year player, leading this team to the playoffs, tremendously impressed by his work ethic, his leadership,” Roseman said. “Last time we talked was during camp and we said we wanted to see him take the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that.”

As long as Hurts is healthy and can run, his passing deficiencies aren’t quite as glaring.

But as a sole pocket passer, his arm’s not gonna cut it.
