Hurns' addition also raises questions about the future of receiver Dez Bryant and his $12.5 million salary for next season.
Now the 26-year-old will start over in Dallas, where rumblings continue about Bryant's future with the team. The deal is reported to be for two years and up to $12 million. He may legitimately push Williams for the starting spot opposite Bryant, or he could usurp Beasley as the Cowboys' slot receiver after leading Jaguars' receivers in routes run from the slot last season.
With the money committed to Williams, Thompson, Beasley and Hurns (once the full financial terms are released), the Cowboys could go to Bryant for a pay cut.
This is a move that seemed unlikely after the Cowboys signed Deonte Thompson a few days ago, but I know a lot of Cowboys Nation will be excited about this transaction. He has the potential to be the third wide receiver in the Cowboys offense but does not win battles enough with defensive backs to be considered the second primary threat.
Bryant's numbers have fallen since he signed a five-year, $70 million contract after the 2014 season when he led the National Football League in touchdown catches with 16.
With Terrelle Pryor on his way to the Jets, the Cowboys did the next best thing by moving quickly to sign Hurns in the midst of a competitive market for his services.
