An outspoken sports analyst has revealed that Jalen Hurts ditched his agency because of its affiliation with former United States President Donald Trump.
Hurts, who is the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, is coming off a season in which he helped fire Philly to the Super Bowl. He has since landed one of the most lucrative contracts in NFL history. And for a time, it was the most lucrative NFL deal ever, before the Baltimore Ravens extended Lamar Jackson.
The QB is represented by Nicole Lynn of Klutch Sports, who went viral after securing the biggest deal in league history at the time. But, prior to that, both Hurts and Lynn were with Lil Wayne’s sports agency.
Skip Bayless recently claimed the Philadelphia star left the agency because of a photo the rapper took with Trump in 2020, at least in part.
