Unlike in his rookie year in the NFL, Jalen Hurts now has the keys on the offense right from the start, as he's expected to be the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. The Eagles know they have something special in Hurts, whose dual-threat capabilities, speed, and athleticism can serve as an inspiration for the Eagles to be as creative as they could on offense.

One way the Eagles are looking at to fully maximize the skill and talent of Hurts in his second year in the pros is to apply the run-pass option (RPO) on their offensive system, via Chris Franklin of NJ.com.

Head coach Nick Sirianni said that he wanted to see Hurts continue to develop as a quarterback, and the RPOs could be a way to help. Sirianni added the RPOs could allow Hurts to get into consistency get into a rhythm throwing the ball while still having a chance to use his running ability.

“Right now, he’s back and forth,” Sirianni said. “He’s getting some good throws on rhythm, but just want to make those numbers grow a little bit because we know how valuable of a tool his legs are.”

Hurts registered 1,061 passing yards and six touchdowns against four interceptions in his rookie season and also rushed for 354 yards and three touchdowns on 4.5 yards per carry.

Whatever the Eagles' plan is for Hurts, they definitely have to improve their pass protection. The Eagles were last in the NFL in 2020 with a 9.8 quarterback sacked percentage.
