Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has turned down an opportunity to be on the Netflix docuseries, “Quarterback,” not once but twice.
Several NFL quarterbacks, including Hurts, Justin Fields, Tua Tagoviloa, Matthew Stafford, and Sam Howell, have declined to participate in the series created by NFL Films, Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions, and 2PM Productions, a new company formed by Patrick Mahomes. The show aims to provide viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at the NFL season through the perspective of top-level quarterbacks.So far, the series has participation from Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota in 2022. The show takes viewers inside the huddles of their favorite teams and inside their homes away from the field.
The NFL allows the QBs to be mic’d up for every game. It captured behind-the-scenes footage of some of the most significant moments throughout the NFL calendar, including Mahomes setting an NFL record for total offense on his way to winning the Super Bowl and MVP award.
For Cousins, he is featured leading the Minnesota Vikings to an NFC North Division title in one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the NFL. “Quarterback” will also show Mariota taking over as the starting signal caller for the Atlanta Falcons in his first and only season with the team in 2022. Mariota was released by the Falcons, and joined the Eagles on a one-year deal worth $5 million.
