100 moments in 100 days: Jimmy Smith was a beast

Jimmy Smith

This year marks the 25th season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. To celebrate, we’re counting down 100 days from our regular season kickoff with the top 100 moments in franchise history.

Yesterday it was Tommy Bohanon’s touchdown to seal the win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2017 AFC Divisional Game.

Today? We’ve got to honor No. 82 — Jimmy Smith!

Jimmy Smith (1995-2005)

862 receptions.

12,287 yards.

68 touchdowns.

21st all-time in receiving yards.

A second-round pick with the Dallas Cowboys, Smith bounced around several practice squads before becoming a member of the inaugural Jaguars team in 1995. He played a minor role in the team’s first season, but blossomed (along with the team) in 1996.

In his 11 seasons with the Jaguars, he had nine 1,000-yards seasons. His 12,287 career receiving yards ranks him 21st on the all-time list, above the likes of Hall of Fame receivers like Michael Irvin, Charlie Joyner, and Don Maynard.

What’s your favorite memory of Jimmy Smith?

Was it his diving touchdown grab against the Denver Broncos during that magical 1996 playoff run?

Or maybe one of his (many) sideline grabs where he just outran the opponent?

Send us your favorite moments and we’ll dig into each one until the Jaguars kick off on September 8th — including whatever video, audio, or stories we can find.
