The Philadelphia Eagles announced Friday quarterback Jalen Hurts will switch to jersey No. 1 for the 2021 NFL season after wearing No. 2 as a rookie:
Hurts' uniform change happens to coincide with his rise from second on the Eagles' QB depth chart to the starting role following the trade of Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts.
The 22-year-old Houston native, a second-round pick in the 2020 draft, took over the starting job during the latter stages of his debut campaign.
