The Jacksonville Jaguars Release Veteran Tight End Marcedes Lewis

Hurns will visit with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

While the Giants have options at the wide receiver position with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall - not to mention the developing tight end Evan Engram - Hurns could provide much-needed depth at the position.

Although Hurns shouldn't be considered a No. 1 wide receiver, he would give the Bills a decent one-two punch along with Kelvin Benjamin.

It is unclear exactly when Hurns will make his rescheduled visit to the Jets. He then asked for his release before the start of free agency, but the team waited until Tuesday to do it. NY has depth at the position, led by Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse, but another impact pass catcher couldn't hurt.

A swift move was finished off when Jordi Alba cut back from the left for Alcacer to slot home calmly into the bottom-right corner. Barcelona are now leading the log with 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid who play later on Sunday.

By releasing Allen Hurns, the Jags save $7 million against their salary cap. Whilst his receiving touchdown total (33) is the second most of any Jaguar, with only Jimmy Smith (67) totalling more touchdown receptions. However, it has not taken long for Hurns to garner interest from a number of suitors.

In 16 games, Lewis accounted for 24 catches, 318 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2017. Unfortunately, Hurns has been unable to mirror that production after suffering season-ending injuries in back-to-back seasons.

Hurns went undrafted out of Miami in 2014, but he's been a productive player for the Jaguars. But he returned strong in the playoffs, posting six receptions for 80 yards in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patroits.

With other teams needing wide receivers having already spent their money elsewhere, this could be the time for the Colts to pounce if the price is right.
