Former Gamecock Hayden Hurst is on the move.
After more than a month of speculation, the Baltimore Ravens have officially traded tight end Hayden Hurst. The Ravens have traded Hurst and a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a 2nd- and a fifth-round pick in 2020,according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
With the emergence of tight end Mark Andrews last season as Baltimore’s best receiving threat and Nick Boyle as one of the best blocking tight ends, Hurst was ultimately third on the depth chart for the Ravens. Though Hurst still held value to Baltimore given their love of using multiple tight end sets, it seems the value the Ravens got in return from the Falcons was just too much to ignore.
Hurst caught 30 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns last season.
