Allen Hurns, Jaguars agree to four-year contract extension
Wide receiver Allen Hurns has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team announced Thursday.
Hurns caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, becoming the youngest undrafted player in NFL history to post 1,000 receiving yards and double-digit scores in one season. He at one point held a seven-game touchdown streak, from Sept. 27 to Nov. 15.
"We are excited for Allen and his family and this is very well deserved," said Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell in a statement. "He is an extremely hardworking player and is so dedicated to his craft. Since the day he arrived, he's been a consummate professional and is a great representative of the Jaguars in the community. He continues to impress our coaching staff on a daily basis and has certainly earned the respect of his teammates. Our organizational philosophy is to reward our homegrown players when the opportunity presents itself. Hurnsy is a clear example of that."
