Eagles GM Howie Roseman wants to “keep Jalen Hurts long term” after speaking on QB, MVP credentials’ contact talk

The Philadelphia Eagles’ general manager, Howie Roseman, has made it clear that he wants to keep quarterback Jalen Hurts with the team for the long term. Roseman addressed the issue at an end-of-year press conference where he and head coach Nick Sirianni fielded questions from the press.

Although there were questions about the possibility of a Super Bowl in the future, it was Hurts’ future that stole the show. With potential MVP credentials and intangibles that are the stuff of dreams, Hurts is a valuable asset to the team.

However, negotiations about a new contract will be kept under wraps, as Roseman believes that contract talks should be kept internal.

Roseman knows that signing Hurts to a long-term contract will be a significant financial commitment. The projections for the young quarterback’s new contract start at $35 million per year and could jump to as much as $50 million.

However, Roseman has already crunched the numbers and is prepared to find a mutually beneficial agreement before the new league begins on March 15.

At the end of the day, Roseman’s top priority is to keep the team’s best players with the franchise. Hurts is undoubtedly one of those players, and the Eagles’ management is committed to keeping him on board.

With some time to figure out the details of the new contract, Roseman is confident that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached.

Eagles face 19 free agents, and more draft picks in 2023

The Philadelphia Eagles are facing a tough offseason with 19 players coming off the books, including 10 starters and seven current or one-time Pro Bowlers. Among the notable names are Brandon Graham, Miles Sanders, and Fletcher Cox. These tough decisions are left to general manager Howie Roseman, who is responsible for executing a plan to replenish the team.

Roseman is aware of the challenge ahead, but he is confident in his ability to make the tough calls. The team has already acquired two additional picks from two trades made, including an extra first-rounder and an extra seventh-rounder in 2023. In addition, the team will receive compensatory picks after free agency is complete.

While it will be impossible to keep every single player on the team, Roseman is determined to compete. He takes great pride in his work and will do everything in his power to ensure that the team is successful. However, he cautions against assuming that the team will be back just because they say they will. The team will need to work hard to make it happen.
