EAGLES SIRIANNI AT THE COMBINE DOUBLES DOWN ON QB HURTS!

By Max Harper

As expected.Eagles coach Nick Sirianni dodged the minefields but we were happy to hear that there were no farming references yesterday at the Combine in Indy.

Sirianni likes Jalen Hurts’ arm strength – “There’s no question that Jalen Hurts has the arm strength to make all the throws.” – and ability to create, whether it’s with his legs in the run game or maneuvering in the pocket to buy more time for his playmakers. The other two elements will improve, Sirianni said, with more experience.

“He just continues to get better whether that’s from Alabama to Oklahoma, or Oklahoma to his first year in the NFL, or first year to the second year,” Sirianni said. “We just know that progression is going to continue and it’s because of the person he is and that he loves football. The guy loves football and he’s just willing to do the things that he needs to do to get better and that’s why he does continue to get better.”

Hurts continues to make good progress in his recovery from offseason ankle surgery.

GM Howie Roseman said that the team is “really optimistic about his readiness for the offseason program” in April.
