#Philadelphia #Eagles: Jalen #Hurts to immediately start preparing for his 3rd #NFL season
The Philadelphia Eagles just wrapped up an up and down NFL season that resulted in a playoff berth, but also exposed a handful of warts that are holding this franchise back.
Hurts was 23 of 43 passing on Sunday, accounting for 258-yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Hurts addressed the media in a walking boot, and he’s likely headed for offseason ankle surgery after toughing it out for the past eight or nine weeks.
One of the hardest workers that you’ll ever meet, Hurts confirmed that his third NFL offseason will start immediately, like tomorrow.
Hurts works with talented quarterback guru Quincy Avery, and this spring and summer will be about continuing to fine-tune his footwork, while also teaching a quarterback who’s played in 20-total NFL regular-season games and one humbling postseason appearance.

Here are several key takeaways from the news that teams from around the NFL have inquired about trading for Eagles star DT Fletcher Cox
The Eagles are preparing to take the field against the Lions in about two hours, but that hasn’t stopped the business of the NFL from reigning supreme on Sunday morning.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, teams around the league are clamoring to trade for Philadelphia star defensive tackle, Fletcher Cox.
Teams have been contacting the Eagles about Cox, figuring they could take a run at him to see if they could get him for a mid-to-late-round pick. On the heels of Cox airing grievances about the defense, teams have reacted. Cox is one of the core veterans GM Howie Roseman wants around, so he’s unlikely to part with him for anything less than a high pick.
With the Eagles sitting at 2-5 on the season, teams are expecting Howie Roseman to start selling off valuable assets.
Cox has just 11 tackles and 1 sack in 7 games this season and most recently publicly voiced his frustration about his usage in Philadelphia’s defensive scheme after the loss in Las Vegas last week.
Here are several key takeaways from the news.
