Are the Jaguars bringing back WR Mike Sims-Walker?

New, comments

Yesterday the St. Louis Rams released former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker, which led a few to wonder if the Jaguars would be interested in bringing him back. While Sims-Walker likely isn't the answer to the Jaguars woes, he certainly wouldn't hurt. This morning, Sims-Walker tweeted "And the phone calls begin..."

Later on today, he tweeted "It's like deja vu..."


And most recently he tweeted "Duuuuuvaaaaallllll"

Sims-Walker makes sense for two reasons: First of all, he would come at veteran minimum, as the Rams are still also paying his 2011 salary. Second, Sims-Walker would already know the playbook and should be able to come in right away and help the team. It would also allow the Jaguars to properly shuffle their wide receiver set up and let guys like Mike Thomas get into the slot, where can do his most damage. Credit to Gene Smith for admitting his mistake in the first place.
