Allen Hurns is no longer a part of the Cowboys’ organization.
Dallas, which is set to begin training camp later this week, wanted the 27-year-old wide receiver to take a pay cut and is reportedly planning to release him. Hurns discussed the situation Tuesday during a brief interview with NFL Network.
“I’m good,” Hurns said. “Just wished they did this earlier, they asked me for a pay cut Monday, (a) couple days before camp.”
Hurns signed a two-year deal, worth up to $12 million, with Dallas in March 2018. He caught 20 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with the team before suffering a serious leg injury against the Seahawks during the wild-card round. Hurns said he was 100% healed.
“No limitations,” Hurns said. “I was set to be full go for camp so I’m ready.”
How is Allen Hurns health wise currently? He tells me “No limitations, I was set to be full go for camp so I’m ready.” https://t.co/pQ2eiySDzJ

The Cowboys have multiple options at wide receiver as they brought in veteran Randall Cobb this offseason and re-signed Tavon Austin.
“I’m very happy and very excited to be down in Dallas,” Cobb said last month, via USA Today’s Cowboys Wire . “I think it’s a great situation, and I look forward to this season.”
Dallas also has star Amari Cooper after acquiring him in a trade with the Raiders in October 2018.
The Cowboys will save about $5 million by cutting Hurns, according to ESPN. He spent his first four NFL seasons with the Jaguars.
