The Eagles are linked to the ‘Mopey’ Seahawks starter, according to an NFL insider.
The Eagles have been linked to the ‘Mopey’ Seahawks starter, according to an NFL insider.
On offense, Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles have found their niche.
The second-year quarterback has been passing the ball and picking up important first downs with his legs.
Over the last three weeks, Hurts has shown himself to be a capable starter.
Depending on who you ask, he’s done enough to establish himself as the franchise’s new face.
If Russell Wilson, a seven-time Pro Bowler, “gets mopey again next offseason,” NBC Sports’ Peter King believes the Eagles will pursue him.
He mentioned five possible Wilson destinations: Philadelphia, Denver, Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Miami.
The Eagles have enough draft capital to make a deal, though Hurts’ rising stock may put a stop to it.
In any case, it’s an intriguing concept that’s probably being discussed in Philly’s front office.
The following is a quote from King:
I’m just wondering if an 8-9 season makes Seattle GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll wonder if rewriting the script and acquiring three first-round picks and possibly one top player from Carolina, Denver, Pittsburgh, Miami, or Philadelphia is a better strategy than trying to keep Wilson happy.
Schneider exudes self-assurance.
Back in 2012, he persuaded Carroll that a short quarterback would be a star, and Wilson was selected third overall.
I don’t think he’d be scared to do it again.

Hurts is a tale of two halves.
In Week 10, Hurts had an unusual day.
He threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, but that was it.
Hurts threw three passes after halftime, one of which was an interception.
As the Eagles continued to move the sticks with a punishing ground attack, he finished 16-of-23 for a 103.2 QB rating.
The Eagles currently have three first-round picks in the top 15 for next April, and NONE of them will be a significant upgrade over Jalen Hurts’ current performance.
Hurts’ progress in Year 2 isn’t being discussed…
