Hurts, Slay named to the 2024 Pro Bowl


Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and cornerback Darius Slay, both first alternates in the voting for the Pro Bowl, have been named to the NFC team for the 2024 Pro Bowl Games in Orlando, Fla. on Sunday.

The Pro Bowl Games replaced the traditional Pro Bowl, featuring a multi-day competition of skill games and flag football. The Pro Bowl Skills Show will be on Thursday, February 1 and the Pro Bowl Games on Sunday, February 4.

After another impressive season under center, Hurts has been named to his second Pro Bowl. The 25-year-old made his first Pro Bowl last season but did not attend due to the Eagles playing in Super Bowl LVII. Hurts was originally the first alternate quarterback for the NFC this season and will replace San Francisco quarterback Brock Purdy, who is preparing for Super Bowl LVIII on February 12 against Kansas City in Las Vegas.

In 17 regular season games, Hurts completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 3,858 yards and a career-high 23 touchdowns. He also added 15 rushing touchdowns, setting a new NFL record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season, matched by Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. The two surpassed Cam Newton's record of 14 in 2011.

Hurts leads the NFL with 38 rushing touchdowns over the last two seasons and ranks third among quarterbacks in rushing yards (2,149).

Hurts also broke multiple franchise records – establishing team records in total yards (4,463) and total touchdowns (38), while finishing second in the league in total scores behind Allen (42).

Hurts is the third NFL quarterback since 1950 to win 27 or more games over 29 starts (Week 15 of 2021 to Week 13 of 2023), joining Tom Brady and Jim McMahon.


Slay, who has made the Pro Bowl in six seasons, four times as an Eagle, started 12 games in 2023 and recorded 57 total tackles with a team-high 15 passes defensed and two interceptions. Slay replaces 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward on the NFC team.

He opened the campaign in spectacular fashion, picking off New England quarterback Mac Jones and returning the interception 70 yards – the longest interception return for a touchdown by an Eagles defensive player since Malcolm Jenkins had a 99-yard pick-6 in 2015 against New England -- in Week 1 victory at the Patriots. Slay also made a key interception in an October 22 win over Miami at Lincoln Financial Field, picking off Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa at the goal line in the fourth quarter of that huge victory.

Along with Hurts and Slay, six other Eagles were selected to represent the organization at this year's Pro Bowl activities. Wide receiver A.J. Brown, right tackle Lane Johnson, and center Jason Kelce were voted in as starters while left guard Landon Dickerson, linebacker Haason Reddick, and running back D'Andre Swift were voted in as reserves.

Brown, dealing with a knee injury he suffered in Week 18, will not participate and has been replaced by Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.
