You heard them. The offseason is about the Eagles building around Jalen Hurts.

What’s that? Oh, you thought the NFL season was over? Who on Planet Earth told you that? It’s been almost one full month since the Philadelphia Eagles held their season-ending press conference, and something vice president/general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Nick Sirianni both said is still on our minds.

Jalen Hurts is the guy next season. The plan is for Philly’s brass to build a team around him during the next few months. They have plenty of draft capital and money to make that happen.

Now, based on what we’ve seen from the Eagles in the past, it’s easy to doubt what you’ve heard. If the Birds find a better option than Hurts at the quarterback position, no one believes that they won’t explore the possibility of that QB’s acquisition. Just look at the amount of time that we’ve spent discussing guys like Russell Wilson

Still, with that being said, arguments can be made for why being patient with Hurts makes total sense. QB1 can also be one of Philly’s best recruiting tools. Guys like him and want to play with him.

Jalen is one of the reasons why DeVonta Smith was pumped about being an Eagle. He’s one of the reasons we keep discussing a potential offseason trade for Calvin Ridley and why that makes sense. His potential and talent make conversations like the following great talking pieces.

Here are six impending 2022 NFL free agents that we haven’t linked to the Eagles that often. All of them would love playing in Philadelphia with Hurts next season.
