The Philadelphia Eagles hosted an open practice at Lincoln Financial field for their fans on Sunday night.
It’s the first time Eagles fans got to seem the team in person, since the NFC Championship game. 50,000 fans turned out to see the Eagles on the field and in live action.
Star QB Jalen Hurts was the last player to enter field and he did with “MVP” chants from Eagles fans.
Hurts is coming off a year in which he led the Eagles to 14 regular season wins, a NFC Championship and a Super Bowl appearance. The Eagles lost to the Chiefs 38-35 in a offensive battle.
Hurts was rewarded with a five-year, $255 million contract extension. Hurts threw 22 touchdown passes and rushed for 13 last season, while passing for 3,701 yards and rushing for 760 in stellar season for the young QB.
The highlight of the open practice was a a 50-50 ball from Hurts to WR A.J. Brown in the end zone. Brown was able to out-jump CB Josh Jobe for the touchdown.
The Eagles offense should have another electric season with Jalen Hurts at the helm.
