The New York Jets will have an opportunity to make a free-agent pitch to wide receiver Allen Hurns.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Hurns will meet with the Jets on Wednesday as he searches for a new team.

The Jets could be in the market for a wide receiver after Robby Anderson was arrested in January on nine charges.

The Jacksonville Jaguars released Hurns on Tuesday. He was due to count $7 million against the salary cap next season, per Spotrac.

After going undrafted out of Miami in 2014, Hurns signed with the Jaguars as a free agent. He led the team with 677 receiving yards and six touchdowns as a rookie.

During the 2015 season, Hurns set career-highs with 64 receptions, 1,031 yards, 16.1 yards per reception and 10 touchdowns. The Jaguars rewarded him with a four-year contract extension with $20 million in guaranteed money.

Injuries have knocked Hurns off course over the past two seasons. He's been limited to just 21 games during that span, including a career-low 10 in 2017. His 12.4 yards per reception last season was also the worst mark of his career.
