Allen Hurns did well for himself on his newly-signed extension with the Jaguars, Bryce Johnston of Over The Cap writes. Hurns gave up only three years of free agency but he secured more new guaranteed cash than Jordan Reed or Harrison Smith who gave up five. Locking up Hurns required a four-year, $40MM+ pact with ~$20MM in guarantees, but as Johnston notes, the Jags did not give up their financial flexibility. Going forward, the Jaguars should have enough room to take care of their other young talents.
Here’s more from the AFC South:
- Free agent pickup Prince Amukamara is making a smooth transition with the Jaguars, Hays Carlyon of The Florida Times-Union writes. The cornerback, who turned 27 on Monday, offers a skill set that is a good fit for Gus Bradley’s defense. “One thing I really like about him is he can play bump and run,” Jaguars defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker said. “That’s something that’s standing out already. He’s going to have to continue to learn the rest of the defense and just get comfortable with our style. The bump and run part of it is real good so far. That was something I was very attracted to watching on tape when he was being evaluated, and it’s carried over.” The former Giant signed on a one-year deal in March that gives him $3MM guaranteed with the potential of reaching $5.5MM.
- Colts QB Andrew Luck is in no-win situation when it comes to contract talks, Gregg Doyel of the Indy Star opines. The two sides are reportedly making serious progress on an extension that could be completed by July 4th.
- Where will former Texans RB Arian Foster wind up? We ran down eight teams that could make sense for the veteran.
