Open receiver Allen Hurns spent the offseason working to recover from a serious leg injury, but it seems that returning to the field will have to come with a team other than the Cowboys.
PFT has confirmed that cowboys will release Hurns. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the team asked Hurns to accept a pay cut, but the veteran preferred to try his hand as a free agent. There is no information on whether the door would be open for a return if Hurns does not find a better offer than the one Dallas sent him.
The movement will release $ 5 million in capitalization space for the Cowboys.
Hurns played in the 16 games of the regular season last year and caught 20 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns. He had a 14-yard catch in a playoff victory against Seattle before suffering an injury that required immediate surgery.
Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin, Noah Brown and Cedrick Wilson remain in the Cowboys catcher depth table.
