Eagles QB Jalen Hurts receives love from songwriter Anita Baker Original version: NBC Sports Philadelphia

Star Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts knows a lot about football, but the 24-year-old signal caller also knows a lot about R&B legends. 

After the Eagles’ 25-20 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, FOX’s Pam Oliver asked Hurts how he would be celebrating after the team’s hard-fought victory, and Hurts responded in a way many wouldn’t think a 24-year-old would.

“I’ll put my Anita Baker on and take this flight home and try and enjoy it with my teammates,” he said.

Oliver quickly responded to Hurts saying that he might be “too young to know about Anita Baker.”

The clip instantly went viral on social networks. Baker replied to Hurts immediately with the simple message “CONGRATS!”

Hurts’ answer actually makes perfect sense. The young QB often stated that he had an old soul, and that he has accepted it.

“It’s fair to say that I’m an old soul,” Hurts said during an interview with Eagles insider Dave Spadaro. “I’ve gotten that my entire life, whether it be the music I listen to or the way I talk to people or how I carry myself. It’s how God made us. It is something I accept and embrace.

“People always look at me and say, ‘What is he thinking? He is so calm. I stay there and enjoy that state of mind. Rarely do my cool lose. Ten out of 10 I won’t.”

Hurts received a lot of love from his fans on social media for his music knowledge and young age.

On Sunday, Hurts put in another strong performance, going 22-for 37 passing for 315 yards, zero passing touchdowns and three rushing touchdowns. He led his team to its 13th season win. 

Now the Eagles will focus their attention on their Christmas Eve NFC East clash For the Dallas Cowboys Saturday
