Sirianni was pleased with how Hurts took command of the offense and that bolds well for the second-year quarterback.
“I just thought that Jalen – he is a relentless worker. He is a relentless worker. He comes to work every single day with the intent to get better every single day,” Sirianni said on a conference call at the conclusion of Eagles minicamp. “And I just saw, even from Zoom meetings when we got in, I just saw him take command of the offense, and really just take command of the offense and was just on it. You ask him a question, he’s on it. It’s really translated into walk-throughs on the field and in drill work.”
In his four starts last season, Hurts completed 51.9% of his passes (69 for 133) for 919 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions for a 77.2 passer rating.
Even if Sirianni has yet to name him the starting quarterback, Hurts looks set up for success in his first season as a full-time starter.
