The Jaguars have re-signed WR Troy Williamson, is reporting.

Williamson was due to become a restricted free agent March 5, but the team evidently felt he was a worth bringing back. Terms of his new deal weren't reported.

The seventh overall pick by Minnesota in the 2005 draft, Williamson has been a career underachiever, bothered by injuries and a lack of production during his five-year NFL career. He has never played in more than 14 games in any season, and last season a torn labrum suffered in Week Two landed him on injured reserve.

Williamson has only eight receptions in 10 games over the past two years. His most productive season was 2006 with the Vikings, when he caught 37 passes for 455 yards in 14 games.

Possessing great speed and still only 26 years old, Williamson played well last preseason and appeared to be on his way to a productive season before he was injured. The release of veteran WR Torry Holt could free up some playing time for Williamson next season.
