Jaguars searching for another starting receiver
Question of the Day
After catching just five passes the past five years, Osgood wants a bigger role. But he has dropped several passes thrown his way.
“It’s all about being consistent,” Underwood said. “We all have the talent to do it. It’s going to come down to who’s the most consistent.”
Williamson showed the most consistency last preseason. The former first-round bust in Minnesota caught 12 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown, and earned a starting spot opposite Holt. But he tore his right labrum in the second game of the season, spent the rest of the year on injured reserve and opened the door for Sims-Walker.
Sims-Walker finished with 63 receptions for 869 yards and seven touchdowns.
Hughes could be the guy. He’s certainly the underdog. Hughes surprisingly earned a roster spot last season, only to get waived after dropping a fourth-quarter pass in the end zone against Arizona in Week 2. He was in tears after the game and couldn’t sleep after getting cut. But he turned down several offers to sign elsewhere and rejoined Jacksonville’s practice squad.
He got a little playing time late in the season, but he’s still waiting for a chance to redeem himself.
“I’d give anything for another shot,” he said.
He has it _ along with everyone else at the position.
“It’s going to boil down to being consistent,” Hughes said. “Consistency and speed are the two things they’ve been searching for for years. If you can play consistently fast, I think you’ll have a chance _ and make sure you catch everything.”
