Jacksonville Jaguars[edit] Hurns was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars after going undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. In his NFL debut on September 7, 2014, against the Philadelphia Eagles, Hurns caught four passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns from quarterback Chad Henne. His first two receptions in the first quarter both went for touchdowns, making Hurns only the second wide receiver in NFL history to record touchdowns on his first two catches (Charles Rogers of the Detroit Lions was the other in 2003), and the first rookie to ever score two receiving touchdowns in the first quarter of his first game. [8][9][10] In his rookie season, Hurns would record 51 receptions for 677 receiving yards and six touchdowns. On November 29, 2015, Hurns was hospitalized after a head injury in Week 12's matchup against the San Diego Chargers by hitting his head after attempting a diving catch.[11] He was released from the hospital later that day.[12] Hurns did not practice on December 3, 2015, and remained in concussion protocol.[13] On December 4, 2015, the Jaguars announced that Hurns would not play in Week 13's game against the Tennessee Titans.[14][15] Hurns finished the 2015 season with 64 receptions, 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns, which all remain his current career highs.[16] As of 2015, Hurns holds the record for most touchdowns in first two seasons for an undrafted free agent in NFL history (16), and was the only wide receiver to score a touchdown in seven straight games, all while playing with a sports hernia. He was ranked 89th by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.[17] On June 2, 2016, Hurns signed a four-year extension with the Jaguars worth $40 million, with $20 million guaranteed.[18] Hurns would regress in the 2016 season from his successful season the previous year. He started and appeared in every game up until Week 13. On October 2, he caught his first touchdown of the season against the Indianapolis Colts.[19] On October 27, Hurns caught seven passes for a season-high 98 yards and a touchdown against the Titans.[20] In Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills, he caught his third touchdown of the season.[21] He suffered a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season.[22] The Jaguars finished with a record of 3-13 and did not qualify for the playoffs. In 11 games, he posted career-lows in total receptions (35), receiving yards (477), and touchdowns (3).[23] In the 2017 season opener against the Houston Texans, Hurns's teammate Allen Robinson was lost for the season to a ACL injury.[24] As a result, he had to step up in the offense. On September 17, 2017, Hurns recorded six receptions for 82 yards and his first touchdown of the season.[25] The next week against the Baltimore Ravens, he grabbed another touchdown.[26] The last time a Jaguar caught a touchdown in consecutive games was Marqise Lee in November 2016.[27] On October 22, Hurns caught five passes against the Colts and topped 100 yards for the first time since December 2015.[28][29] On his 26th birthday, Hurns caught a season high seven passes for seventy yards but left the game with an ankle injury against the Titans.[30] The Jaguars finished with a 10-6 record and made the playoffs for the first time since 2007.[31] Hurns was shutout in the Wild Card win against the Buffalo Bills and only caught one pass in the Divisional Round win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.[32][33] In the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots, he caught six passes for eighty yards.[34] Hurns' 80 yards were the most receiving yards by a Jaguar in the playoffs since Matt Jones in 2006.[35] Including playoffs, Hurns finished the season with 46 catches for 576 yards and a career-low two touchdowns.[23] On March 20, 2018, Hurns was released by the Jaguars.[36] Dallas Cowboys[edit] On March 23, 2018, Hurns signed a two-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys worth up to $12 million.[37] Hurns changed his jersey number to 17 to honor the Parkland Shooting victims.[38] Career statistics[edit]
