Cowboys WR Allen Hurns: Number 88 Is “All Dez”

Friday, the Cowboys “finally” made a splash in , and did so in a big way. By former to a two year deal worth $12 million, Dallas bolstered their weak receiving corps with another big-bodied threat.

Due to some similarities in their game, and the number of resources already invested into that wide receiver room, some have anticipated that the signing of Hurns signals the end of 's time in Dallas.

Allen Hurns, however, clearly has different plans.

Hurns took to Twitter to state that the number 88 is “all Dez,” hinting that both he and Bryant will be on the roster in 2018. A receiving corps with both Hurns and Bryant can be dangerous, especially if used correctly.

Allen Hurns may “look” like an X receiver, but he has the ability to move into the slot as well. He can be used as a compliment to what Bryant does, and is a legitimate number two option for the Cowboys going forward.

While Hurns may believe that Bryant is safe, may not be. Williams has struggled with inconsistencies and bone-headed plays during his time in Dallas, and most fans believe it's time to move on from him. The problem is, the Cowboys just paid him.

According to cap gurus, Dallas gets basically nothing back from cutting Williams, meaning they may need to find a partner if they want to move on. Reacting to the public reaction of the Hurns signing, Williams also took to Twitter to voice some frustrations.

Yes, it appears he read your tweets.

The Cowboys now have a lot of wide outs on their roster, all fighting for roster spots and playing time. Hopefully, this competition breeds success in the .

Maybe competition will bring out the best in T-Will.

Hopefully we get the 2k15 version of Hurns.

Terrance Williams is a talented wideout, you just don’t get rid of talent. The more talent you have the better off you will be. Three, four receiver sets can include Bryant, Williams, Hurns and Witten or Gathers. That would give the Cowboys some dangerous weapons to deal with for an opponent. Williams was the only receiver that could consistently get open last year, we need him.
