Several notable players are hopping on planes headed to new destinations on a busier-than-usual NFL trade deadline day.
The Florida Times-Union’s Tania Ganguli is reporting Sims-Walker — who was cut by the Rams — is back in Jacksonville where he is expected to sign by the end of the day.
The 6-2, 212-pound receiver emerged as the Jaguars’ top big-play threat in 2009 and had 1,431 yards and 14 touchdowns over his final two season in Jacksonville.
But Sims-Walker has failed to provide the same production for Sam Bradford and the 0-5 Rams this fall. In four games, the 26-year-old has just 11 receptions for 139 yards and no touchdowns.
With Lloyd heading to St. Louis, Sims-Walker became expendable to the Rams. Now he returns to another offense desperately needing a reliable down-field target — and a system he knows.
Through his first five games, rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert is completing just 48.8 percent of his passes for an average of 5.83 yards per completion, numbers Sims-Walker should help improve.
