Allen Hurns Reacts In Real-Time On Twitter To Getting Released By The Jacksonville Jaguars
Wide receiver Allen Hurns is no longer a member of Jacksonville Jaguars after the team released him in a cost-cutting move according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will release wide receiver Allen Hurns on Tuesday, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Hurns was signed to a four-year, $40.05 million extension in 2016 that included $20 million guaranteed. Since signing that deal, however, he has missed 11 games because of injury and caught 74 passes for 961 yards and five touchdowns.
The move will save the team $7 million against the salary cap.
Hurns became expendable with the emergence of rookies Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole in 2017.
Hunrs instantly reacted to Schefter’s report on Twitter with this emoji tweet.
Hurns then began interacting with fans showing him love.
Immediately after Hurns was released by the Jags, several NFL players from other teams began recruiting him.
While the Jags don’t really need Hurns right now but there are plenty of teams who could his services right now.
