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.”
