The Philadelphia Eagles are on the rise after getting a complementary quarterback-wide receiver duo.
Jalen Hurts looks to improve from his first full season as the team’s starter.
He is poised to have a great campaign after the Eagles traded for Pro Bowl wideout A.J. Brown.
The former Ole Miss standout had over 1,000 receiving yards for the Tennessee Titans last season.
But on the final year of his rookie contract, the Titans traded him for the Eagles’ 18th and 101st picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Aside from DeVonta Smith, Hurts gets another deep threat in Brown.
More importantly, he gets to play with someone dear to him.
"I get to play with my best friend. I’m so excited, playing with someone who thinks like me. I talk to him every day regardless of this football stuff."

Brown said, “I get to play with my best friend. I’m so excited, playing with someone who thinks like me. I talk to him every day regardless of this football stuff.”
Chemistry is important to a team’s success, especially in a 17-game regular season.
A rift between two athletes or parties could be a major distraction in the locker room.
Therefore, it’s good for Philadelphia that Brown and Hurts are on the same page.
Thinking the same way helps them execute plays without saying a word.
The more they connect with one another, the Eagles will be a shoo-in for the NFC postseason.
Hurts Has No Excuse To Fail
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has done his part to help Hurts succeed.
Last year, Philadelphia made a trade to draft Smith.
They also have Quez Watkins who had a good 2021 season.
Aside from their solid receiving corps, the Eagles also have one of the best run offenses in the league.
Hurts has the speed to take off during broken plays and gain yards on the ground.
Hurts should be able to lead the team to a postseason return with all the targets he has.
