The Jacksonville Jaguars improved their receiving corps with the signing of free agent tight end Julius Thomas last month, but that won't stop them from going after veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings.

According to Pro Football Talk, Jennings is visiting Jacksonville on Monday after visits with the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers.

According to Pro Football Focus, Jennings ran more than 66% of his routes from the slot in 2014 and more than 65% of his routes from the slot in 2013. In those two years, he's compiled 127 receptions for 1,546 yards and 10 touchdowns.

It sounds like Jennings could be a fit if the Jaguars are interested and the price is right. Given the fact that Caldwell has specifically said he wants a slot receiver, it makes a lot more sense.
