Hurns certainly isn’t wanting for a market after being released by the Jaguars earlier this week. He’s already met with both the Cowboys and Jets, while the Browns, Bears, Bills, Saints, Texans, Raiders, and Panthers have all reportedly reached out to Hurns. Dallas hasn’t stopped its pursuit of Hurns even after reaching a deal with Deonte Thompson earlier toady, reports Todd Archer of ESPN.com (Twitter link).
Hurns is only 26 years old, but he hasn’t had much success since the 2015 campaign. During that season, Hurns served as the Jaguars’ No. 2 receiver behind Allen Robinson and posted a 64/1,031/10 line. Since then, Hurns’ role in the Jacksonville offense has been drastically scaled back, while injuries have also limited him. He failed to top 500 yards receiving in either 2016 or 2017.
Baltimore, meanwhile, has already reached agreements with wideouts Michael Crabtree and John Brown, but the club doesn’t seem to be ending its search for receivers. Since Wednesday, the Ravens have met with restricted free agent pass-catchers Willie Snead and Cameron Meredith, neither of whom would require a sacrifice of draft pick compensation.
