Report: Browns, Ravens pursuing Allen Hurns

Wide receiver Allen Hurns didn’t lack for immediate interest after being released by the Jaguars this week and he went to Dallas to visit with the Cowboys on Wednesday.

Hurns was initially slated to visit with the Jets, but changed his plans in light of the snowstorm that hit the area. The Jets and Cowboys reportedly have company in pursuit of Hurns’ signature, however.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Browns and Ravens are also vying for Hurns’ signature on a contract. Both teams have already made moves at receiver this offseason with the Browns trading for Jarvis Landry and the Ravens signing both John Brown and Michael Crabtree.

There’s no word on visits to Baltimore or Cleveland at this point and none will materialize if the Cowboys, Jets or someone else makes the right offer before one can get on the schedule.

  1. As crazy as it sounds – he’d better off with the Browns. Checkdown Charlie won’t throw it down field to him unless he runs a 3 yard out 2 yards short of the down marker.

  2. Dear Browns fans,

    Don’t be in such a rush to get your hopes up this offseason. I will NEVER lift my curse!

    Yours sincerely,

  3. Never feel sorry for Browns fans. They ran Brian Hoyer out of his own hometown for going 10-6 as their starter, because Manziel was their savior. Browns fans get what they want and they want to be 0-16, not 10-6.

  4. Been a Browns fan for 40yrs. Its been tough!!!! But, i dare to say that Dorsey has made some great moves especially at WR. Adding Landry to a corps with Gordon who can easily be the #1 WR in the league. We know hes capable, If he controls his demons. Their is not a CB in the game that will stop him. If healthy Coleman can be a standout player. Landry…Pro Bowl WR. If they land Hurns, its possible with Tyrod Taylor that the Browns will have the best $ corps in football. Which is an amazing statement. And IF the land Barkley at 4. They will have a scary good offense. I dare say….The Browns might be a good team.

  5. Uh, I don’t think Browns fans had anything to do with Hoyer’s contract not being renewed and his subsequent signing as a free agent with Houston. Browns fans are smarter than that. Management, not so much.

    Real Browns fans knew what Manziel was. We didn’t want Hoyer gone.

  7. I never hated Hoyer. He was a good qb. He needed stability. He needed a coach who could build a system around him. I thought he could of been an Alex Smith type with a good qb coach. Game manager, could rally if needed. Never got a fair chance. Maybe the best Browns qb since 99′?

  8. This guy is acting like Hoyer has actually done anything since he left.

  9. As a Ravens fan, it does appear the Browns have made some strides in the right direction this offseason. But for the love of God Brown’s fans. Your team is basically coming of a 1-31 stretch. Win a few games before you think your team can even be considered “good”. Don’t get me wrong, I think you will get a W soon, but please get a few.
