Jalen Hurts ‘Giving Off Some QB1 Vibes’
The National Football League released its 2021 offseason camp dates for every team on Thursday.
We'll get our first look at Philadelphia Eagles' new rookie class during the rookie mini-camp from May 14-16 and a mandatory mini-camp running June 8-10.
The Eagles have also mapped out their 10 allowed OTA workouts dates: May 25-27, June 2-4 and June 14-17.
As the team prepares for what should be an interesting 2021 season, they will do so with a new starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts.
"Here is a guy giving off some QB1 vibes," said ESPN's Jeremy Fowler on SportsCenter on Saturday.
"He organized off-site workouts with Dallas Goedert, Miles Sanders and some other teammates. He really dug into Nick Sirianni's new offensive play-book. He got nuances down, did the leg-work, and tried to get everyone on the same page."
"The show is his, they have Joe Flacco for insurance, but they feel good about Hurts taking ownership"
Along with Hurts, the depth chart features former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco and undrafted rookie free agent Jamie Newman, so expect the team to add another camp arm before training camp begins.
Remember Hurts was never given the benefit of rookie camp, mini-camp or OTA's during his rookie offseason, but enters this offseason as the clear favorite to be the teams starting signal-caller in 2021.
"I think it can be very dynamic," said Eagles first-round pick DeVonta Smith when asked about how dynamic he thinks the Eagles offense can be this season. "We all have to come in and put in the work. If you don’t put in the work, you are not going to do it, but I feel like this team is going to be putting in the work and everybody is going to be excited, and we are trying to change the program around."
It seems Hurts is already getting the team together and putting in the work, which just might help the Eagles surprise people in 2021.
