    Wow. I think we've all gotten used to guys hemming an hawing for 3 years and milking it for every news story they can get (Mr Favre, I'm looking at you). Though I bet the Jags would have like to have known this before the draft.

    Smith was on the downside of his career, but he was still their best WR. They will miss him bigtime...

    Reggie didn't play his position. Ernest Wilford was Jimmy's back up.

    The WR corp is expected to be Jones/Wilford and Williams/Hankton/Owens.

    That is all subject to change, of course, once training camp unfolds.

    Hey that sucks. I've always liked Smith despite his Jaguarness. However it is nice to see a classy guy like Smith quietly step away from the game on his own terms, dignity intact and no side show involved. .
