JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — For a franchise with a relatively brief NFL history, the Jacksonville Jaguars sure have some track record when it comes to receivers.
It’s not an impressive resume, either.
Sure, Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell were a dynamic duo in the late 1990s and early 2000s. But in the decade-plus since, the Jaguars have cycled through more go-to receivers than head coaches and starting quarterbacks combined. They missed in the draft, whiffed in free agency and spent millions while getting little or nothing in return.
Retired Jaguars left tackle Tony Boselli says “it’s not bad luck. We’re choosing the wrong guys.”
The Jaguars believe Justin Blackmon, who is coming off a four-game suspension, and Cecil Shorts III could fill the lengthy void in Jacksonville.
