Jags sign another wide receiver

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars continue to address the receiver position, which has been hammered by injuries midway through the 10 organized training activities (OTAs). The team signed former Nevada player Brandon Wimberly on Monday.

To make room on the roster, the Jaguars released offensive tackle DeMarcus Love.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Wimberly was one of the tryout players that participated in the two-day rookie minicamp last month. He caught 97 passes for 989 yards and eight touchdowns for the Wolfpack last season after catching 70 passes for 845 yards and four touchdowns in 2012.

The Jaguars claimed Kevin Smith off waivers from Arizona last Thursday.

Jaguars receivers have been plagued by injuries. Seven sat out last Thursday's OTAs, including Cecil Shorts (calf) and second-round draft picks Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Marqise Lee (ankle).

Kerry Taylor, former practice squad player Chad Bumphis, and undrafted rookies Damian Copeland and Allen Hurns took all the reps on Tuesday and Thursday. Taylor is the only healthy receiver that has caught a pass in a regular-season game. He has 22 catches for 229 yards.
