Bears and Texans among notables who've reached out to Allen Hurns

Bears and Texans among notables who've reached out to Allen Hurns

Hurns, who joined the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2014, has 189 receptions for 2,669 yards and 21 touchdowns over his four National Football League seasons. Tuesday ESPN's Adam Schefter announced that Jacksonville will be releasing the former undrafted free agent.

Hurns got off to a fast start in his first two seasons in Jacksonville, but injuries have plagued him the past two season and the Jaguars released the fifth-year wideout on Tuesday to open up cap space.

The Jets have plenty of money available, especially considering how much they had set aside to make a run at Kirk Cousins. He had a great season in 2015 - 64 catches, 1,031 yards, 10 touchdowns.

The Jets' current receiver pecking order is Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson, and Quincy Enunwa (coming off neck surgery that sidelined him for all of 2017).

Hurns would add a viable third option to the Jets offense as a big-bodied receiver. Robby Anderson, last year's No. 1 receiver, has run into off-field troubles and is proving that he can not be relied on.

In his next six years in office, Putin is likely to assert Russia's power overseas even more strongly. Putin won the recently-concluded Russian Presidential elections paving way for his fourth term.

The team is releasing Allen Hurns, NFL Network Mike Garafolo reported.

After missing only two games combined his first two seasons in Jacksonville, injuries caused Hurns to miss 11 games over the past two seasons. The 33-year-old Lewis has 375 receptions for 4,502 yards with 33 touchdowns in 170 career games since being selected by Jacksonville with the 28th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Fans of the franchise will certainly miss the veteran tight end, especially after his impassioned letter published by the Players' Tribune in January. His career stats so far - 189 catches, 2,669 yards, and 21 touchdowns.

So while they didn't sign an elite No. 1 receiver in free agency - Hurns' former Jaguars teammate, Allen Robinson, signed with the Bears - they are still looking to bolster that position group.
