Mike Sims-Walker is making his triumphant return to Jacksonville.
Okay, so it’s not triumphant. Sims-Walker was dumped by the Rams at midseason, and the Jaguars only want him back out of desperation. (Remember that they had no interest in re-signing him in free agency when the lockout ended.)
Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union broke the news and writes Sims-Walker will sign by the end of the day.
The move provides Sims-Walker a chance to get his career back on track. Jacksonville desperately needs a deep receiver and Sims-Walker is a more explosive player than Jason Hill. Sims-Walker knows the offense, so it shouldn’t take long to get him up to speed.
Blaine Gabbert needs help; this reunion that makes sense for the 1-5 Jaguars.
