“It means a lot. It means everything,” Hurts said. “Three years ago today, (Eagles owner) Mr. (Jeffery) Lurie and Howie had the courage to draft me when no one really understood why. No one knew why. I think just to have the opportunity to grow into the young man I am today, I couldn’t do it in another place and I couldn’t imagine this being another way. It’s a hell of an opportunity for us all.

“It’s not a moment where I can reflect because the journey is not over. It’s really hard for me to do that, but I know I’ve walked through the fire time and time again, and in the end, it’s always made me stronger. The only thing that I’ve wanted to do, I’ve just been on this constant quest to be the best player that I can be. With no limits. Just trying to be the best version of myself — the best player, leader and man I can be. And that will never change. So, I think the hard work continues, and the fire continues to burn.”

“Well, obviously, I think you look at all the great teams around here — I won’t get too much into detail — but you look at all the great teams and great players, it takes a village. It takes a village,” Hurts said. 

“I know that after last year — I mean, even my first three years — but just playing around with different guys that I’ve been able to play around, we’ve got something special going on. We all want to do it for a long time, so that was a point to me, to take that approach with it.”
