Jacksonville Jaguars second-year wide receivers Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson plan to use their summer break to learn from one of the NFL’s best at their position.
The pair plan to head to the University of Minnesota this summer to take part in Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald’s annual camp. According to ESPN’s Mike DiRocco, the duo will train with other NFL wideouts and quarterbacks and work on route running, speed and strength workouts and other receiver-related drills.
This will be the first time Hurns and Robinson have attended the camp. Robinson said he wanted to attend last year, but missed it because of a hamstring injury that kept him out of much of OTAs.
The former second-round pick, who caught 48 passes for 548 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games as a rookie, said he’s eager to work with an All-Pro in Fitzgerald.
"I think that’s the main thing, to go out there with an elite group like that just challenging each other and learning a lot from some vets," said Robinson, via DiRocco. "That’s a pretty elite group of receivers going out there so when you’re going out there with the best, take something out of it and learn from the vets and try to improve yourself."
Hurns, a former undrafted free agent who caught 51 passes for 677 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, said he’s looking forward to the opportunity to learn from some of his peers.
"It’s always nice to see what others are doing so you can pick things up," Hurns said
