Jordan Howard: The sky is the limit for Jalen Hurts

USA TODAY Sports

When Jordan Howard returned to the Eagles late last season, he played alongside quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Barring any changes, Hurts is expected to be Philadelphia’s starting QB again in 2021. Based on his experience with the young signal-caller, Howard thinks Hurts should be able to excel.

“I feel like the sky is the limit for Jalen,” Howard said during his Tuesday press conference. “He’s a very hard worker and I know he’s not going to take any opportunity he gets for granted. So I’m just excited to see how his future unfolds.”

Hurts threw for 1,061 yards with six TDs and four picks as a rookie, also rushing for 354 yards and three touchdowns. He should have plenty of opportunity to show what he can do under new head coach Nick Sirianni while sporting a new number in the upcoming season.

  1. He’ll be good like most any other running one read QB until he can’t run anymore … QB can run for yards on practically any passing play

  2. Sky is the limit, if that means sky= 2nd string QB for his entire NFL career I agree! That is one sports city you don’t want to under perform in, that fan base is ruthless!!!

  3. What a shame about Howard. He had so much promise his first half of the season with the Eagles and never regained form after his injury. Still, at 26, there should be time for him to reach his potential again.

  4. To be fair, the quarterbacks Jordan Howard has played with over his career are:

    Jay Cutler
    Brian Hoyer
    Matt Barkley
    Mike Glennon
    Mitchell Trubisky
    Bad Carson Wentz
    Ryan Fitzpatrick
    Tua Tavigialoa (sp?)
    Jalen Hurts

    Everything is relative.

  5. I doubt Howard makes the team… He’s certainly trying help his cause and toe the company line by publicly endorsing Hurts. However, w/ Sanders, Scott, Holyfield, Huntley, Killins and anyone they may pick up in the draft or undrafted FA, it’s unlikely he’s on the roster week 1.
