Source: Bears Seeking Sims-Walker?

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.

    2. Mike Sims-Walker, Jacksonville

    3. Malcom Floyd, San Diego

    4. Steve Smith, Carolina (an older version of Hester….too small)

    5. Roy Williams, Free Agent (Dallas)

    Steve Smith – fourth?

    Too small?

    What he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in toughness, strength, and desire.

    He has the heart of a champion, a true competitor, a warrior with the rock in his hands.

    One of the absolute best at breaking tackles and making something electrifying happen after the catch.

    Despite being only 5-9, Smith can jump up and go get it with the best of ’em.

    No doubt, Smith would thrive in the Windy City.
