It stands to reason following the team\\\'s selection of the generational tight end Kyle Pitts with the fourth overall selection in the NFL Draft. He will become a free agent in 2022. In 2020, Hurst didn\\\'t deliver on the high expectations following the exit of Austin Hooper, but still produced a respectable 56/571/6 stat line for the struggling team, enough to keep him on the roster for the final year of his contract, but certainly not production to keep Pitts off the field in his rookie year. Hurst, still only 27 and DLF\\\'s TE22, is likely to continue to slide down the rankings as he nears his free agency season while his value will ultimately be determined by his next team\\\'s situation. He\\\'ll be a risk-on TE2 at best until Pitts is comfortable enough to take over the starting role.
