Getty Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been electric in four starts, including a career-high day against Kansas City.
No one has ever questioned Jalen Hurts’ work ethic. And the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback appears to have locked himself in the gym all offseason. Hurts looks toned and athletic in a new promotional video for a major sportswear company. He is the new face of Eastbay Performance.
In the 30-second video, he throws the medicine ball while lifting weights and doing footwork exercises. It would seem to indicate that Hurts has a big chip on his shoulder in 2022.
“The difference between losing and winning comes down to one thing, preparation,” Hurts said. “If you want to be the best, there is no off-season. This is where you show up, this is when you work harder than everyone else, this is what it takes to be game ready. Eastbay Yield. He plays, he trains, he lives.”
This is the third commercial that Hurts has presented since last year. She also appeared in a used car ad while making a cameo appearance in a Paramount Plus trailer during the NFL playoffs.

Rare Breed: Climb Mountains
It hurts lives for the “Rare Breed” motto. He wears a wristband that has those two words engraved on it and they’re written all over his social media. But what does it mean? Hurts has attempted to answer that question many times.
“It’s me, there’s really not a word you can put,” Hurts said at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. “I think I have all the skills to extend every shot, make any play, I win.”
Jalen Hurts and Eastbay have reached an agreement in which the #Eagles QB will be the face of future @Eastbay campaigns.

He explained what “rare breed” meant when asked about it during the 2021 training camp in South Philadelphia.
“Something that has really stuck with me as something near and dear to my heart considering some of the things that I had to overcome at a young age, certain endeavors that I had to pursue,” Hurts said. “And climbing all these kinds of, all these high mountains, to reach out and achieve something bigger. So, uh, I think it was the weirdness of a situation in college or now, whatever, just being able to get through whatever’s in front of you.”

Eagles excited to run again with Hurts
The Eagles remain committed to Hurts despite ongoing rumors that they want to sign a quarterback. Head coach Nick Sirianni was very clear about his intentions when he addressed reporters at the March 29 NFL league meeting. Hurts is his man and the franchise man.
“I couldn’t be more excited about Jalen Hurts and the type of player he is, the type of person he is,” said Sirianni. “I know he will continue to develop for who he is, so I couldn’t be more excited to work with him and I know he knows that.
“I know he’s excited to work with us and build on the good year he had last year. So he knows that he is our man and we show it to him with our actions day in and day out.”
