The Dolphins have had their first player opt out of playing the 2020 season.
Wide receiver Allen Hurns announced his plans in a Twitter post on Tuesday afternoon. Hurns said it “definitely wasn’t an easy decision,” but that he was doing what he thinks is best for his family “especially with a baby boy on the way.”
Hurns returned home to Miami when he signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins last July and was set to stick around after signing a two-year extension in November. He had 32 catches for 416 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games during his first year with the Dolphins.
