With a franchise quarterback in the making, the Rams now need receivers who can make him look even better. And in a buyers’ market at the pass-catching position, the Rams have bought the services of Mike Sims-Walker.
The former Jaguar announced on his verified Twitter page that he has joined the Rams. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Walker signed only a one-year deal.
Walker, a three-year veteran, received no qualifying offer from the Jaguars, making him a free agent. The decision was confusing, given that he had a couple of solid seasons in Jacksonville, with seven touchdowns in 2009 and seven more in 2010. He had a career-high 869 receiving yards in his second season.
