The Jaguars didn't think highly enough of WR Mike Sims-Walker to re-sign him this offseason. Sims-Walker developed a reputation during his time in Jacksonville for drops, immaturity and an inability to beat press coverage. Yet, Jacksonville apparently doesn't think highly of the rest of its receiving corps, either; Sims-Walker was brought back after being released by the Rams earlier this week. WR Mike Thomas received a contract extension last month and leads the team with 27 receptions for 301 yards. The rest of the receiving corps, however, has combined for just 20 catches and 306 yards. Although the Jaguars come off looking silly for changing their tune on Sims-Walker, the move makes sense. He costs the Jaguars very little and is familiar with the offense. Plus, he gives rookie QB Blaine Gabbert another big target. Jacksonville hoped rookie WR Cecil Shorts could make an impact, but he has yet to record a catch through six games.
