Eagles DT Jordan Davis didn’t mince words: his favorite thing to do is “hit” people on the football field.

Don’t believe the hype. That was the message from Jordan Davis regarding his viral rep against Cam Jurgens. The 6-foot-6, 340-pounder wasn’t trying to embarrass anybody at the Philadelphia Eagles’ live practice; honestly, Davis wished it never happened.

The clip wasn’t a true representation of what has been a grueling back-and-forth between Davis and Jurgens at training camp. The cameras just got a very one-sided rep, according to Davis. Those two guys are the future anchors of the offensive and defensive lines in Philly.

“I hate it honestly. I feel like it’s very one-sided,” Davis told reporters. “You see one rep but you don’t see Cam blocking me and getting me at practice, and getting me in the other reps. I always say looks can be deceiving. You know, one rep and it goes viral or whatever, but Cam is holding his own. He’s a very good player and it’s just good competition, it’s iron on iron, so you see the background of everything but don’t let the hype get to you.”

Video or not, the one thing there is no denying is Davis’ pure power. His freakish size and athleticism is going to force opponents to double-team him. Which will create an open path to the quarterback for someone else. Davis’ mere presence is going to unleash feared pass rushers like Brandon Graham, Javon Hargrave, Fletcher Cox, Derek Barn
