Eagles set blueprint with Jalen Hurts for 49ers’ Trey Lance; Josh Sweat gets new contract

The intentions were the same, but the ultimate goal was different.

When the Eagles were using Jalen Hurts as a “gadget” quarterback last season while Carson Wentz was the starter, it was mostly to force the defense to prepare for two different quarterbacks.

It certainly wasn’t to groom Hurts to take over for Wentz.

We all know how that turned out. Wentz had by far the worst season of his career. By Dec. 6, Wentz was benched for Hurts and then traded after the season.
