Hymes to try out for Jaguars

OWINGS MILLS -- Wide receiver Randy Hymes will try out for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, according to a league source.

The unrestricted free agent played for the Baltimore Ravens for the past four seasons, catching 43 passes for 578 yards and four touchdowns.

Known for his athleticism and size at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, Hymes played quarterback and wide receiver at Grambling. Plus, he stood out as a basketball forward and triple jumper for the track and field squad. His hands are large enough to palm a football helmet.

Hymes caught a career-high 26 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in 2004 when he started seven games.

Last season, he played in every game but his playing time was reduced with the acquisition of Pro Bowl wideout Derrick Mason. In 2005, Hymes started three games and caught 11 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns.
