Having been shown the door by the Jaguars on Tuesday, it didn’t take WR Allen Hurns to stir up some interested teams and take some visits.
Although Hurns wanted to go talk to the New York Jets first, the latest snow storm of 2018 (the third) to impact the Northeast made travel almost impossible for the next day or so. Instead, Hurns is seeing one of the most recognizable franchises in sports on Wednesday:

The Cowboys are always an intriguing destination for any player, especially with QB Dak Prescott having solidified himself, as much as you can in the NFL, as Dallas’ QB.
The ‘Boys are also bringing back Pro Bowl WR Dez Bryant, after some back and forth about his contract situation, etc. Bryant’s current salary is $12.5 million, but his cap hit is $16.5 million if the Dallas releases him. That is not likely.
And obviously, the Cowboys are looking for complimentary players to play opposite or alongside Dez, in the the slot.
Hurns was slated to make $7 million this season, and Anderson also tweeted last night that she was told (either by Hurns or his reps) that Hurns was asked to take a pay cut to stay in Jacksonville, and was released when he declined. He was more expendable after Jacksonville signed Colts free agent WR Donte Moncrief to a lucrative one year deal.
If Hurns doesn’t stay and do a deal in Dallas, the Jets are also intriguing. This, as they have already brought back veteran Josh McCown and now, have signed former Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, who’s coming off an awful knee injury, to a one year deal.
