Joe Flacco praises Jalen Hurts for his work ethic,...


Joe Flacco didn’t join the Eagles to actually mentor Jalen Hurts, but the Super Bowl-winning veteran has taken notice of how the second-year quarterback is working to prepare for the 2021 NFL season.

While talking to Jeff Skversky of ABC 6 in Philadelphia, Flacco praised Hurts’ work ethic and leadership thus far.

“You can tell that in the meeting rooms, he’s attentive, he wants to get it right.”

“And then out on the field, he does a great job of getting in the huddle, leading the guys, and being on top of what he has to do for the team.”

“That’s where it starts, with all the simple fundamentals things of leading the guys, and you are on top of your stuff, and everyone else can that.”

Flacco spent the majority of his career with the Ravens, getting drafted by Baltimore with the No. 18 overall pick in 2008.

The Audubon, New Jersey native led the Ravens to a Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers and he knows what it takes to get an NFL franchise over the hump.
