Paper Weight: An Interview w/ Allen Hurns

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns earned a 4 year $40 million contract this past offseason, $20 million of which is guaranteed. A lot of players might fold under the pressure of their first big contract and coming off a 1,000 yard season but rather than be held down by the paper weight, Hurns continues to excel as the team heads to London to face off with the Colts this Sunday

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns is about as much of an underdog story as there is in the NFL, after going undrafted out of Miami in 2014 he spent the last two seasons becoming one of the great, young talents in the league.  Jacksonville showed their appreciation of his efforts on the field by rewarding him with a 4 year $40 million contract this past offseason, $20 million of which is guaranteed.  A lot of players might fold under the pressure of their first big contract and coming off a 1,000 yard season but so far Hurns has continued to contribute in the Jags offense and provide a reliable source of catches for Blake Bortles in 2016.  The future looks bright for the former Canes speedster, and rather than be held down by paper weight, Hurns continues to excel as the team heads to London to face off with the Colts this Sunday.
