Sports Talk with Brodes: What is the Logic Behind Drafting Jalen Hurts?!
I will never see why the Eagles' front office decided to draft Jalen Hurts in the second round of the NFL Draft. They just committed to Carson Wentz, paying him over $100M guaranteed.
I don't trust a word that comes out of Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson. The only way this would make a little bit of sense is if they don't believe in Wentz anymore. That's it.
A gadget guy? Saving salary? Insurance if Wentz gets coronavirus? You name it, the excuses are coming out of fans trying to rationalize this pick. Reality is, if they truly believed in Wentz, this would not of happened.
I like Hurts and I think everyone who followed his college career will agree he has an awesome head on his shoulders. To expect him to be a developmental quarterback and walk right into a backup spot is nonsense. Not only that, now the Eagles want him to learn how to play running back, wide receiver, and other positions?
This is flat out ridiculous!
