The Jacksonville Jaguars have been sold but don't expect them to move to Los Angeles anytime soon.

St. Louis reporter Howard Balzer on Mike Sims-Walker (quoting a "Jaguars insider")

56

Asked for insight on Sims-Walker, a Jaguars insider said, "He can't beat press coverage off the line of scrimmage and he also whines if they don't throw to him even if they win. He doesn't want to take the blame when he doesn't make a catch and he has a bad knee. "One of (general manager) Gene Smith's mantras is ‘Know your own team’ and if he doesn't think he can play, I would be leery of him. Maybe for the minimum or incentives. "He also missed curfew last year, supposedly out all or most of the night with a woman and was suspended for the game.

"A year ago he surprised people, but once they studied him, they were able to shut him down." ----------------------------------------------------------------- Just food for thought.

The slot job is open now that Dennis Northcutt has been traded to the Lions. Thomas dropped to the fourth round because he’s 5-8, but Maurice Jones-Drew wasn’t hampered by being 5-7 in the pros. Slavin also noted he’s a 200-pounder with good lower body strengt
