The Philadelphia Eagles have caused surprise by choosing the quarterback Jalen Hurts with their choice of second round (53rd overall), on Friday night.
What is surprising is that the formation of the Pennsylvania count on the services of Carson Wentz as the pivot point number 1. The latter has signed a four-year agreement and a value of $ 128 million last summer.
A few hours after the selection of Hurts, the director general of the Eagles, Howie Roseman, said that”there is no threat to Carson”.
“Our actions and the amount that we have agreed with the contract extension shows that we are going to Carson, continued the DG during an interview with the network ESPN. We believe that he is the one who can lead us to our next Super Bowl. For better or for worse, we are developing the quarterfinals.”
“Nobody expects to see a rookie take the place of a player who has participated in the Pro Bowl, a guy who can claim the title of perfect player”, he also said.
Roseman has also stated that he had called Wentz before selecting Hurts, and this, in order to prevent it. The number 1 of the Eagles has also welcomed the product Sooners of Oklahoma via social media.
“I am eager to learn and grow as a quarter. I am ready to work”, said Hurts after being drafted.
