Britain Covey passionately defends Jalen Hurts’ leadership in a bold Twitter outburst

Published on


Britain Covey, the smallest player on the Eagles roster, has shown great courage while defending All-Pro quarterback Jalen Hurts. Despite being tied with Boston Scott for the title of smallest player, Covey has proven himself to be a fierce defender and supporter of his teammate.

Five years after Joseph Santoliquito’s shocking piece on then quarterback Carson Wentz, the Hall of Fame writer dropped another stunning article centered around current Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. The report, published on Bleeding Green Nation, claimed that Hurts had become less accessible to media, fans, and teammates since signing a big $255 million contract extension. The article also suggested that Hurts had become more guarded and defensive, especially during the offseason when he was in high demand.

Sources within and around the team say Jalen Hurts “changed” since signing the big $255 million contract extension. His accessibility to media, fans, teammates had been limited. He became less accessible this season, according to numerous sources. In fairness to Hurts, who is very guarded to begin with, his defensive walls went up even higher with the many open hands coming at him pulling him in various directions last offseason—striking on his popularity when his brand was hot.

Following the release of this article, there were reports that Covey had some apprehension about approaching Hurts in the locker room. However, Covey quickly addressed these rumors, stating that Hurts is the best leader he’s ever been around and refuting claims that he was scared of him.

Covey also took to Twitter to express his support for Hurts, claiming that Hurts’ authenticity is what makes him a great leader and emphasizing his approachability both on and off the field.

He further clarified that Hurts’ personality is not intimidating or unapproachable, contradicting the narrative that had been circulating in the media.

It’s clear that Covey’s public support of Hurts has been a response to the growing pressure and scrutiny surrounding the quarterback, particularly in light of his new contract and the changes within the coaching staff. The media and some fans have been quick to criticize Hurts, but Covey’s defense of his teammate is a powerful statement in support of the quarterback.
