Veteran Receiver Visits Jacksonville

The Jaguars visited with a veteran receiver this week, and no, it wasn't the Panthers recently released, outspoken wideout, Keyshawn Johnson.

Instead, the Jaguars visited with former Packers, Texans, and Lions deep threat Corey Bradford. Bradford is 6'1", 201 lbs., and is another slot receiver. Bradford is a veteran with experience, as he will be entering his tenth year in the NFL, and he's had good success against the Jaguars, as he's caught three touchdown passes in four games, all while playing for the Texans.

Bradford enjoyed his best season as a pro in 2002, in which he started all 16 games for the Texans, and caught 45 balls for 697 yards, and six touchdowns. Bradford is one of the few free agent wide receivers who are left on the market who have solid experience, and Bradford will bring a career average of 15.6 yards per catch with him to whatever team he hooks on to. If the Jaguars do come to terms with Bradford, he can bring some more competition to training camp, and possibly win a roster spot.
