Beachum had a wise attitude

The Jacksonville Jaguars are releasing receiver Allen Hurns and saving $7 million in 2018.

Hurns will be a free agent and able to sign with any team that wants him.

His future had been in doubt for months Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , since Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole emerged late last season. Hurns really became expendable when the Jaguars signed two receivers last week, bringing back Marqise Lee and adding Donte Moncrief in free agency.

Hurns would have been behind Lee and Moncrief on the depth chart, and Jacksonville felt his salary was too high for a backup who has missed 11 games the last two seasons.

Hurns has 189 receptions for 2,669 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years since signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie from Miami. But he caught just 74 passes for 961 yards and five scores the last two years while dealing with a sports hernia in 2016 and a high ankle sprain in 2017.




Jets offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum had a wise attitude toward being a college football player: You’re getting your education paid for, so you might as well make the most of it.

Beachum said on NFL Network that he redshirted as a freshman at SMU and got his bachelor’s degree having just finished his junior football season, meaning he still had three semesters on campus before he would begin his NFL career. And he decided to make the most of those last three semesters by taking classes so hard that the dean initially felt it wouldn’t be possible to do the coursework with a football player’s schedule.

“I graduated in three and a half years. I got my undergrad in economics and sports management Authentic Derwin James Jersey ,” Beachum said. “Most guys when they go back to school take bowling, volleyball, just do something to have fun and blow off time, but I figured I could get some extra education, so I thought about getting a master’s. The dean at the time . . . didn’t really feel it was something an athlete could do at the time, so I got rejected at first. But I kept trying Youth Dorian O'Daniel Jersey , found a way to get in to the master’s program and got it done in 16 months and got it done with a pretty high GPA. And he was the guy who introduced me at the commencement, so it was a great to see a guy who rejected me let me do the commencement speech.”

That story is a good one for young people, football players or not, to hear.
