Cowboys add former Jaguars WR Allen Hurns with 2-year deal
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys added another receiver in free agency Friday when Allen Hurns agreed to a two-year deal.
Hurns’ deal with the Cowboys came three days after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley welcomed Hurns to the team in a Twitter message, ending that with “lets go to work!” Hurns responded, “Let’s get it bro” on his account.
Hurns initially signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie out of Miami in 2014. He got a $40 million, four-year contract extension after the 2015 season, when he had 64 catches for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games. But he has since been hampered by injuries.
Hurns missed 11 games because of injuries during the past two seasons with the Jaguars, who last week brought back receiver Marqise Lee and added Donte Moncrief in free agency.
In his four seasons with the Jaguars, Hurns had 189 receptions for 2,669 yards and 21 TDs. He caught just 74 passes for 961 yards and five scores the past two years while dealing with a sports hernia in 2016 and a high ankle sprain in 2017.
On Thursday, Dallas signed free agent wide receiver Deonte Thompson, who played 53 games the past six seasons for Baltimore, Buffalo and Chicago.
