TE Dallas Goedert has noticed three specific improvements with Jalen Hurts
Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni has gone on the record saying he’s noticed a “big difference” in Jalen Hurts this offseason.
Sirianni recently spoke with ESPN detailing the improvements Hurts has made to his game:
“I’m noticing a big difference,” he told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. “What I see is a crisper ball. The accuracy I’ve been very pleased with. You can just see him taking strides every single day with his accuracy because of the fundamentals he has with his feet and his upper body.”
The Eagles concluded OTA’s today with training camp set begin on July 26. Although the team has only participated in 7-on-7 drills, Hurts has displayed precision and accuracy throughout practice.
Again, they’re running around in shorts — so take these assessments with a grain of salt.
Starting tight end Dallas Goedert has also praised his QB’s work this summer, telling reporters that Hurts is “seeing the field better, making quicker decisions and getting the football out faster.“
“His determination to be great is something that you see every day,” Goedert said. “I was out there in California with him working. The detail that he had with the coaches, looking at film, looking at his throwing mechanics, things like that. He really wants to be great and he shows that each and every day.”
These are encouraging remarks from fellow coaches and teammates as Hurts prepares for his second year as the lead man. With Pro Bowl WR AJ Brown in Philly and rising star DeVonta Smith poised for a breakout Year 2, it’s up to Hurts to tie it all together on offense.
The young signal-caller led his team to the playoffs last season, ending the year with 3,144 yards passing on 61% comp., 16 TDs and 9 INTs while rushing for 784 yards and adding 10 scores on the ground.
