The new additions include:
Hurst, 28, was drafted with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2018 draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He’s entering in the final year of a four-year, $11.036 million rookie contract that included a $6.106 million signing bonus.
After Hurst spent two seasons with Baltimore, the Ravens traded him to Atlanta along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for a second-round pick and a fifth-round pick, all in the 2020 draft.
In 2021, Hurst has appeared in 12 games and recorded 25 receptions on 30 targets for 188 yards (7.9 YPC) and three touchdowns.
