Frenette says any deal would hinge on how much draft capital a team is willing to give up for Hurst, who was a first-round pick two years ago. He adds Hurst would be open to a new situation where he is able to catch more passes.
Both New England and Jacksonville have a strong need at tight end, while Baltimore is deep at the position. The Ravens would reportedly consider parting with Hurst for the right offer, likely a late second or a third-round pick.
Hurst, 26, was taken with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Ravens. According to OverTheCap.com, he received a four-year, $11,036,032 contract that includes a $6,106,204 signing bonus.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Ravens to pick up in 2021.
In 2019, Hurst appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and caught 30 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns. He was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 14 tight end out of 67 qualifying players.
