NFL free agent news: Allen Hurns headed to Cowboys

With Dez Bryant’s future in Dallas increasingly murky, the Cowboys continue to shore up their receiving corps.

Former Jaguars wideout Allen Hurns has signed a two-year deal in Dallas, the team announced Friday. That move comes on the heels of former Bills receiver Deonte Thompson agreeing to a one-year deal Thursday.

Hurns provides some versatility for Dak Prescott as both a downfield threat and someone who can work effectively out of the slot. The key is whether he can stay healthy; he missed multiple games in 2016 and 2017 due to hamstring and ankle injuries, respectively.

Those back-to-back disappointing campaigns came on the heels of Hurns’ breakout 2015 showing, in which he racked up 1,031 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

The Rangers are also playing wait-and-see with right-hander pitcher Tim Lincecum, who postponed a planned bullpen session on Sunday because of continued caution over a blister on his right middle finger.

Lincecum has continued his throwing with a soft rubber ball but hasn’t worked off a mound since Wednesday. Texas is hoping that he can be an option at the beginning of May but that remains an unknown until the blister is completely healed.

Bogaerts was covering third base and chasing his own mishandling of a ball relayed by J.D. Martinez when he got hurt. He needed help to get off the field and walked with a noticeable limp. He was replaced by Brock Holt.

Manager Alex Cora said he expected to know more about the severity of Bogaerts’ injury on Monday.

“Further evaluation tomorrow,” Cora said. “We’ll know tomorrow after all the tests and everything.”

Pressured by Kuhlman, Notre Dame’s Jordan Gross lost the puck in the neutral zone. Jade Miller poked the puck ahead to Kuhlman at the Irish blue line, and after a brief hesitation in the right circle, the captain beat Morris with a rising shot.buccaneers_004
