By signing a $255 million contract with the Eagles, he outpaced Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.
Jalen was a part of the Eagles in 2020 but as a second-round draft pick. He became a full-time starter for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021 and has since won 23 games. He led the Eagles, which had a 14-3 record last season, to this year’s Super Bowl.
Many people and fans are very happy with Jalen’s contract with the Eagles and fans are reacting to this.
This contract became possible because of Hurts strong and great performance in past years but some credit also goes to his management team, which is an all-women management team.
Jalen Hearts is managed by the all-women management team of the sports agency Klutch Sports Group. An all-women team, three of whom are Black, is a rarity in the NFL world and has received notable attention for setting a precedent for diversifying a historically male-dominated industry, sports management.
