Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Putting Together Offseason Workouts With The Team’s Receivers

Videos by OutKick

The Philadelphia Eagles remain in flux about their quarterback situation for the 2021 campaign.

The team has Carson Wentz on the roster, and while he’s drawn plenty of interest around the league, the team isn’t certain that interested teams will give them what they want for the former first-round pick.

There’s also questions about second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts and his future. Last season, he showed some skills, going 1-3 in four games as a starter with six touchdowns and four interceptions.

A lot of fans consider Hurts the future quarterback for the Eagles, and he’s now trying to build goodwill with the franchise by putting together offseason workouts to get to know his wide outs better.

John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia stated last week that Hurts has reached out to receivers, and that he is putting together a couple workouts in Texas to get ready for 2021.

It’s not the first time the Eagles have had a quarterback putting together offseason workouts, as Wentz himself has put together sessions with receivers in the past.

If the Eagles do wind up trading Wentz this offseason, it sounds like it’ll be Hurts’ show to run unless the team tries to pull off a deal with a team like the Texans for the services of Deshaun Watson.

Hurts’ best game came in his second start when he and Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray went at it. Hurts threw for three scores and 338 yards in a seven-point loss to the Cardinals.
