Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports Allen Hurns was the team's "clear-cut" No. 1 receiver throughout spring practices.
As expected. Hurns inked a two-year, $12 million pact after his release from Jacksonville, and the Cowboys then released Dez Bryant while failing to re-sign Brice Butler. It leaves Hurns as the default top wideout, followed by Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, and rookie Michael Gallup in whichever order. In an offense that figures to lean on Ezekiel Elliott as much as Elliott's body will allow, maybe only one of these receivers will provide steady fantasy value. Jun 20 - 9:43 AM

Cowboys signed WR Allen Hurns, formerly of the Jaguars, to a two-year, $12 million contract.

ESPN's Josina Anderson first reported that Hurns told her he's "going to sign with Dallas". Hurns is an immediate upgrade to a Cowboys receiving group that's desperate for depth. Terrance Williams' $3.5 million salary is guaranteed but Hurns could challenge him as starter opposite of Dez Bryant from the moment camp opens. Hurns also led Jacksonville in routes run from the slot last season and could immediately trump Cole Beasley, who's entering the final year of his deal. The Cowboys are in dire need of another playmaker after they inexplicably cut bait on Brice Butler and his average 21.1 yards per catch last season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys, Jets, Ravens, and Browns are all "vying" for free agent Allen Hurns.

Hurns met with the Cowboys on Wednesday, and he is also scheduled to speak with the Jets. Based on this report, it would not be surprising to see him travel to Baltimore and Cleveland as well before he makes his final decision. Hurns caught 39 passes for 484 yards and two scores in 10 games with the Jaguars last season.

Updating a previous item, free agent Allen Hurns will visit the Cowboys on Wednesday due to the heavy snow in the New York-New Jersey area, pushing back his visit with the Jets.

Hurns has allegedly drawn interest from 10-plus teams and appears likely to make multiple visits. He'll visit the Jets after the Cowboys. In Dallas, Hurns could be an upgrade over Terrance Williams on the outside, though Williams' $3.5 million salary is guaranteed, or he could push Cole Beasley out of the slot with Beasley in the final year of his deal and coming off a down season.
Mar 20 - 9:12 PM

In a radio interview with WFNZ Charlotte, free agent Allen Hurns said he's drawn interest from up to 10 teams.

Hurns said he's already been in touch with the Bears, Bills, Panthers, Saints, Raiders, Texans and Jets, who he plans to visit on Wednesday. "Once we get the offers, we finalize things as far as the quarterback situation, the offense, things like that as far as the opportunities I'm going to have," said Hurns. "With certain teams, you might possibly take less to play with this quarterback or in this offense." The 26-year-old was cut by Jacksonville after losing his spot to Donte Moncrief.

Free agent Allen Hurns will visit the Jets on Wednesday.

Hurns was let go by Jacksonville on Tuesday following an underwhelming season that saw him miss six games due to a high-ankle sprain. The 26-year-old topped 1,000 yards during his breakout 2015 campaign and could probably benefit from a change of scenery following years of inconsistent quarterback play from Blake Bortles. The Jets also met with Terrelle Pryor Tuesday, suggesting the team is serious about upgrading it's receiving corps.

Jaguars released WR Allen Hurns.

The move saves $7 million against the cap. The writing was on the wall for Hurns after the Jaguars gave Donte Moncrief a one-year, $9.6 million contract. Hurns was probably overpaid in Jacksonville, but he is a solid receiver who should have no trouble finding a new home. The Jaguars will move forward with Marqise Lee, Moncrief, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole atop the depth chart.
Mar 20 - 10:16 AM

The Jaguars could release Allen Hurns this offseason.

Hurns hasn't come close to living up to the five-year, $41 million deal he signed in 2016. He's missed 11 games the last two seasons and isn’t needed behind Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole. Releasing Hurns would clear $7 million in cap space.
Jan 24 - 6:05 PM

Allen Hurns caught 6-of-7 targets for 80 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

The 80 yards were Hurns' most since Week 7. He missed Weeks 11-16 with an ankle issue. It was a disappointing year for a player who had a big opportunity after Allen Robinson was lost for the season in Week 1 with a knee injury. Robinson and Marqise Lee are both headed to free agency, but even if they both walk, Hurns could still return as the Jags' No. 3 receiver. Rookies Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook both came on strong down the stretch.
Jan 21 - 6:55 PM

Allen Hurns caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in the Jaguars' Divisional Round win over the Steelers.

He tied Keelan Cole for third among Jaguars wideouts in targets; Marqise Lee led the way with six, and Dede Westbrook saw three. Hurns is the Jags' full-time slot receiver, a position against which the Patriots struggled down the stretch.
Jan 14 - 5:26 PM

Allen Hurns caught 3-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Titans.

Finally back from his Week 10 high ankle sprain, Hurns led all Jaguars non-running backs in receiving yards in a game where Blake Bortles only threw for 158. Hurns should maintain full-time slot duties when the Jags host Buffalo in the Wild Card Round.

Allen Hurns (ankle) is expected to play in Week 17 against Tennessee.

Hurns was taken off the injury report after practicing on a limited basis for the second straight week. He'll be active Sunday, but may not play the entire game with the Jaguars locked into the No. 3 seed. With Marqise Lee (ankle) out, Hurns, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole are Jacksonville's top three wideouts.

Allen Hurns (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Hurns is still working back from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 10. The Jaguars have nothing to play for this week—they're already assured of the No. 3 seed in the AFC—but coach Doug Marrone has been adamant about playing his starters. It might serve Hurns well to shake off the rust this week ahead of Jacksonville's playoff opener.

Allen Hurns (questionable, ankle) isn't expected to play in Week 16 against the 49ers.

Hurns had been trending toward sitting after Jacksonville promoted Jaelen Strong from the practice squad. He'll miss his six straight game despite practicing on a limited basis this week. With Hurns out, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole will see larger Week 16 target shares.

Allen Hurns (ankle) is questionable for Week 16 against the 49ers.

Hurns is looking to return for the first time since going down late in Week 10. He, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole will likely be the receiver trio Sunday.
