UPDATE: We now know the dollar value of the contract and it’s affordable.

Word has just broken that the Dallas Cowboys are planning to sign wide receiver free agent Allen Hurns to a two-year contract. After the initial shock of the move, everyone started wondering what does it mean for the future of Dez Bryant in Dallas? Could they afford both players? Would the Cowboys release Dez Bryant, or would they release some other players?

As of now, we don’t know the exact terms of Hurns’ two-year contract, but Mike Fisher reports that it is affordable and the Cowboys plan to keep Dez Bryant.

If that is true, then you have to wonder if anybody further down the line will be affected. Could the Cowboys look to trade Terrance Williams? Maybe they trade/release someone like Cole Beasley? They could also clear some room by getting rid of James Hanna’s contract.

We’ll have to see what the numbers are for Hurns, but it could also affect the way they think about the draft. Is a high draft pick on a wide receiver still in the plans if they have both Bryant and Hurns? Stay tuned...
