The season did not end the way that Philadelphia Eagles fans would have hoped, losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-15 in the first round of the playoffs.

The Eagles did not get a great performance from second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts, who only threw for 258 yards with a pair of costly interceptions in the game.

Despite this, it appears that the Eagles have made a decision on Jalen Hurts as their quarterback for the future. General manager Howie Roseman and head coach Nick Sirianni may have come to a decision on Jalen Hurts’ future going forward after a breakout campaign for the former Alabama quarterback in his first year as the full-time starter.

“We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really a first-year starter, second-year player, leading this team to the playoffs. I am tremendously impressed by his work ethic. We wanted to see him talk the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that.” Roseman said on Hurts this season.

“Jalen knows where he stands with us. He knows he is our quarterback,” said Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni.

There had been rumors this season on multiple quarterbacks being an option for the Eagles to bring in, including Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson, but it appears that Hurts will be the man for the Eagles next season.

Despite an early exit for the Philadelphia Eagles, they far exceeded expectations most had for them this past season.

Not many picked the Eagles to be a playoff team this season, and Jalen Hurts will look to improve on the Eagles playoff birth in the 2022-23 NFL season firmly entrenched as their starting quarterback.
