CowBuzz: Allen Hurns Announces Jersey Number & Other Social Reactions

On Friday, the team welcomed free agent wide receiver Allen Hurns, after being drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL draft. As we've seen throughout this free agency period he made his reaction known through twitter and engaged with many fans, players and former players on social media.

Mainly he got to whatever else thinking, what jersey number will he wear? He currently sports the No. 88 but any Cowboys fan knows not only what that number means historically but who it belongs to right now, fellow wide receiver, Dez Bryant. With Bryant's future dominating the talk of the Cowboys' off-season it raised many eyebrows. Needless to say Hurns answered a lot of curious minds with less 140 characters:

Hurns has announced that he will officially wear No. 17. 

In addition to his number, he also got to virtually meet some of his new teammates and even alumni.

Give the newest Cowboy a follow on twitter, as it looks like it wouldn't be a bad idea for any fan. Another good idea is to keep up with our free agency tracker for any other team updates(link).
