Jalen Hurts’ horror fumble has Odell Beckham Jr’s attention as Eagles surrender lead

Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles made a huge mistake during the second quarter of Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs. With the Eagles leading 14-7 and having possession, Hurts suffered a fumble all by himself that was scooped and returned to the end zone by Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton.

The Chiefs’ touchdown tied the game and created a huge problem for the Philadelphia Eagles, who were dominating earlier in the second quarter. It was also an uncharacteristic mistake by the quarterback, who had a small number of turnovers during the season.

Reigning Super Bowl champion and free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. noted on his Twitter account how much of a game-changer this fumble was

Beckham did not play in the 2022 season as he was recovering from a torn ACL suffered against the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVII. He’s expected to be one of the most-coveted free agents in 2023.

Will Odell Beckham Jr. join Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2023?

It’s unlikely that the two guys will be together in 2023, as Beckham is set to earn a massive contract in free agency even though he did not play in 2022 due to a knee injury.

Teams will be salivating at the chance to sign someone of his caliber. Wide receivers with his talent don’t become available often, so whoever needs to upgrade the position will probably ignore the fact that he’s returning from a serious injury, even if it means taking a huge risk.

The Eagles have a good amount of salary cap available for the 2023 season, but they will also have to extend Jalen Hurts’ contract, which means the cap space will be tight once they extend their most important player.

It would be fun to see Hurts throwing to Odell Beckham Jr. alongside AJ Brown, but this is more wishful thinking than anything. Teams like the New York Jets and the Chicago Bears are bigger candidates to sign him to a big contract.

Philadelphia will have to upgrade their wide receiver #3 position, but it’s not going to be with Odell.
