The First Read: Five major takeaways from Jalen Hurts' mega-extension
If there's one thing we knew about Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts after last season, it was that he didn't have any more questions to answer. He earned All-Pro honors, made a serious case to be the NFL's Most Valuable Player and nearly beat Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl LVII. All those people who doubted his ability when he arrived in the NFL three years ago suddenly looked foolish. The dude could play, and the scary thing was that he was seemingly just getting started.

"I wasn't able to do what I wanted to do," he said Monday. "We handed the ball off on every play or whatever. I didn't throw all offseason. That's kind of frustrating for a guy that likes to do that.

"Now it's been more about just kind of managing it, getting the mobility back the best that I possibly can," Mahomes explained. "I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent, but I've had no, necessarily, limitations. It's just that when you go through the grind of a week of training and you're trying to push it and go through the rehab process, but at the same time you want to make sure you're still building. You might be a little sore on the weekends, but we've done a great job of pushing it to the right limit to where now I'm throwing and stuff like that and having no limitations there.
