A Dynamic Playmaker At Receiver
Mike Sims-Walker may get his wish after all.
According to an NFL source close to Sims-Walker, the Bears are showing interest in the Jags wideout and both sides are in contact.
Earlier this week, the product from Central Florida said Chicago would be an “ideal” spot for him to land.
The 6-foot-2, 214-pound pass catcher has caught 122 passes for 1,647 yards and 14 touchdown in three seasons with the Jaguars.
Sims-Walker or Williams: I much rather snag Sims-Walker than Roy Williams. I can sense urgency, a hunger, a certain thirst in MSW’s play. Can you expect that same passion from Williams?
With Williams, you cannot count on him to keep his mouth shut and perform consistently at the same time. And the latter is hard to come by, and that’s saying something when the former is tough to monitor, too.
My only concern about the Jags receiver is his ability to stay healthy. Too many times last season he was a game-time decision leading up to Sunday. However, I do admire his combination of size and speed.
Here’s my top-five wish list of wide receivers:
1. Steve Smith, Carolina
2. James Jones, Green Bay
3. Malcom Floyd, San Diego
4. Mike Sims-Walker, Jacksonville
5. Derrick Mason, Free Agent (Baltimore)
Update: Safety/kick returner Danieal Manning is officially gone; signed with Houston – four years, $20 million.
