The Philadelphia Eagles announced new player numbers Friday, including Hurts switching from No. 2 to No. 1 — just like his status on the depth chart.
Hurts wore No. 1 at Oklahoma after wearing 2 in high school and at Alabama. The new number became available with the departure of punter Cam Johnston.
“I’m excited for a fresh start. No. 2 is really in the back of my mind, back of my heart, what I always wanted to be, so we’re excited,” Wentz said. “Hopefully people think I look good in 2; if not, who cares, my wife does. So that’s all that matters.”
