Keenan McCardell interviewing to be Jaguars receivers coach

Jaguars v Bengals  X

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly interviewing former wide receiver Keenan McCardell for the vacant receivers position, according to Hays Carlyon.

McCardell was a receivers coach for Washington from 2010-2012 and at Maryland from 2014-2015.

The former Jaguars receiver played 17 years in the NFL, six of which were with the team. He was the perfect complement to Jimmy Smith in the late 1990's, fearlessly catching passes over the middle and earning the "thunder" half of the "thunder and lightning" nickname with Smith. He and Smith caught more passes for more yards between 1996 and 2001 then any other duo at any other time in the NFL.

He rarely dropped passes, rarely fumbled, was fast, strong, an excellent route-runner, and besides Smith, no Jaguars receiver has ever come close to matching his talent on the field. His 11,373 yards is currently best for 29th all-time.
