As for Lewis' $3.5 million contract option, it wasn't guaranteed until a later date, so his release will help the Jags' cap situation in the long run.

Seeing the Jacksonville Jaguars part ways with Hurns after losing Allen Robinson to free agency may seem like a surprise to some since Blake Bortles clearly needs all of the help he can get in the passing game after a year ago.

In 207 the emergence of rookie receivers Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole put Hurns' future in Jacksonville in question.

The Jaguars signed Hurns as an undrafted free agent in 2014, and he caught 115 passes in his first two seasons. His best season came in 2015, when he caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards.

Among seeing the deal, Joe Banner, former president and CEO with Eagles and Browns, called it the "worst team contract in all of free agency" this offseason. However, he missed 11 games the past two seasons due to injury. It was thought to be a matter of when not if he was released when last week the Jaguars re-signed WR Marqise Lee and inked Donte Moncrief to a 1-year deal.

Earlier this month, the Eagles traded veteran receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers, leaving the teams wide receiver corps without much depth or experience to speak of outside of Alshon Jeffery and third-year pro Nelson Agholor. However, the team signed free agents Niles Paul and Austin Seferian-Jenkins last week.

Lewis owns the franchise records for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end.
