The Jaguars’ 40 million door man has an allergy that’s pretty inconvenient to a football player. Grass just so happens to be the dirty culprit. It hasn’t seemed to really affect his on-field production, though. In 2 seasons since being picked up by the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent, Hurns has amassed 115 catches, 1,708 yards, and 16 touchdowns. Hurns cashed in on that production this year, signing a 4-year, $40M deal.
Hurns explained to ESPN’s Mike DiRicco,
Sometimes I break out, sometimes I don’t. At times it gets pretty aggravating, but for the most part it’s been holding up good.
Fortunately for Hurns, he only has to take an occasional Benadryl to overcome his allergies. He described it as more of an annoyance than a problem. If you ever see him wearing long socks or sleeves on a hot day, now you know why he does so.
