Jacksonville Jaguars releasing WR Allen Hurns

After word broke early Tuesday that the Jaguars were releasing him, receiver Allen Hurns received a Twitter message from his former teammate, Allen Robinson, with a pair of eyes and the Chicago Beas' handle.

Hurns will visit with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. But bad weather forced him to cancel his flight, therefore he'll be coming to Texas first.

Hurns, 26, enjoyed a career season in 2015, reeling in 64 receptions for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games.

Hurns blossomed in the National Football League after going undrafted in 2014, coming out of Miami.

With Anderson in a tenuous legal situation, the Jets have recently done their homework on free agent wide receivers.

The Jaguars have revamped their offense this season, and wide receiver Allen Hurns is set to become the latest roster casualty.




The tight end caught 24 passes for 318 yards and five touchdowns in 2017.

It's been a weird last week for Grant, who originally appeared to cash in nicely on a four-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, a contract that would have paid $29 million ($10 million signing bonus, $14 million in total guarantees).

In 2016, a severe hamstring injury limited the talented receiver. He missed six games with an ankle sprain to end 2017.

The Jaguars saved $7 million in salary-cap space by releasing Hurns and $3.5 million more by releasing Lewis. But they also allow a young, talented player to hit the open market.

Although Hurns shouldn't be considered a No. 1 wide receiver, he would give the Bills a decent one-two punch along with Kelvin Benjamin.
